A new report will be launched at Asia House, Copenhagen, in the presence of Danish and Indian stakeholders. The report highlights collaboration opportunities between Indian and Danish parties in relation to India’s ‘100 Smart Cities’ urban development program.
At the seminar on Tuesday, the report will be launched and discussed in relation to the topic of ‘How can Danish businesses access the tremendous opportunities in India, offered by the '100 Smart Cities' program?’. Among the guests, there will be presentations by the Danish Ambassador to India, Peter Taksøe-Jensen; India's ambassador to Denmark, Rajeev Shahare; Director of the National Institute for Urban Affairs, Dr. Jagan Shah; and Quercus Group Partner, Neelabh Singh.
The Danish Royal Embassy in India will launch the study that was developed in partnership with Quercus Group. The value of the report lays mostly in its instructive and prescribing content for Danish companies, which are interested to enter the Indian market in relation to the ‘100 Smart Cities’ program.
During June 2015, India launched an ambitious urban development program called ‘100 Smart Cities’, which encourages sustainable transformation of Indian cities across the nation. Contextually, there is tremendous pressure on this Asian nation’s urban development. By 2050, India will experience a population growth of up to 400 million people.
Danish companies are known for their advanced expertise on both consultancy and technical knowledge when it comes to sustainable development. For this reason, the ‘100 Smart City’ program represents a great platform for cross-country collaborations.
