London, with the opening of a new overseas office in Bengaluru, is not only encouraging big firms but also the small companies. A trade delegation from the UK capital is looking to increase bilateral trade between London and India, for which it has brought representation from its start-ups, like Baby2Body, Spotify and Car Quids. London is increasing its efforts to attract Indian businesses and investors, with the opening of a new overseas office in India’s tech capital, Bengaluru. The new office is part of London’s continued drive to strengthen trade and investment links with India and will ease the process for Indian companies setting up, or expanding in London. Wipro Limited, a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company has revealed plans to expand its operations in London, with the news that it will open a new 13,000 square foot office in the capital. The new space in the City of London will be the company’s third London office. Wipro has 1800 employees in London and is continuously investing and growing in the region. Wipro joins a host of Indian tech firms to make significant investments in London, with the Mayor of London’s promotional agency, London & Partners, revealing that Indian tech businesses are set to create over 400 new jobs in London this year. The announcements have been made to coincide with the visit to Bengaluru of a trade delegation of London business leaders and tech entrepreneurs from the Mayor of London’s International Business Programme, as they look to increase bilateral trade between London and India. The visit is part of the wider trade mission to India this week led by The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who also met with business leaders and politicians in Mumbai and Delhi earlier this week.
