India continues to grow as an economic and political player in the Southeast Asian region. Businesses are seeing opportunities to penetrate a new market, expand existing operations, or export commodities/services to the billions of people who call India home. On the other side, Indian companies are seeing opportunities to export their goods and services as well as expanding their companies to other markets in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world. Dickinson Wright has the knowledge, expertise and background in cross-border services to help companies navigate this growing economic powerhouse.
