From the discovery of the new world by Christopher Columbus to the conquests of Vasco da Gama, India has been at the heart of every seafarer’s dream for centuries. Today, the world looks anew to India as it is poised to become a global hub for trade and commerce and continues to be home to an enormous talent pool. Great partnerships are forged in the wake of this opportunity.
