Manchester India Partnership
The Manchester India Partnership (MIP) was established in February 2018 to build and strengthen trade, investment, cultural, and educational ties between the two regions.
India has the fastest growing economy in the world and the MIP brings together businesses, universities, and the public sector to develop a strategic approach to engaging one of the UK’s most important international partners.
There are numerous similarities between India and Greater Manchester’s ambitions, making them ideal collaborators.
Initiatives backed by Indian government, such as Digital India, Make in India, and Clean Energy India, align perfectly with Greater Manchester’s research and innovation strengths in technology, advanced manufacturing and energy – creating huge opportunities for collaboration across trade and investment plus broader cultural, visitor and academic connections.
