India is urbanising at an unprecedented rate. Official estimates suggest nearly 600 million of Indians will be living in cities by 2030, up from 290 million in the 2001 census.The Indian government is encouraging the formation of a number of “Smart Cities”. The first 20 have been announced. The combined opportunity for all the Smart Cities is expected to exceed £20 billion.
Much of the funding for smart cities will come from private developers and from abroad. To be successful SMART CITIES will require modern infrastructure, a welcoming environment for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in India, and enthusiasm from the real estate, construction and supply chain industries. Smart Cities will represent many £millions of contract opportunities for serious companies from these sectors in UK and Europe.
Strong partnerships with Indian companies will be critical for UK and European companies, in realising the potential of India’s smart cities. Issues such as what supporting interventions and investments are required, areas where the private sector can come in, and what legal frameworks will be needed must be addressed.
Business India forum is organising a conference in London to discuss how UK companies can benefit by partnering with Indian compnaies to win some of the Smart City contracts.
