In light of concerns that the UK is losing out on its international trading opportunities compared to global competitors in the US, Europe and the Far East, the Committee's report examines trade and investment relations with India with the aim of identifying lessons to inform its wider examination of policy actions required to ensure that the UK remains competitive. The report makes three main conclusions: i) despite our long history of commerce with India, the UK is not as engaged with India's markets as it should be, perhaps because too many UK companies tend to see India simply as a source of low-cost labour and overlook the fact that it is an emerging market in its own right; ii) the Indian market is liberalising at a rate not always fully appreciated in the UK, and iii) there are problems with the UK's institutional arrangements to support trade with, and investment both in and from India, such as the existence of too many overlapping bodies with ill-defined responsibilities and often inadequate resources.
