To visit India, to know its history, its ethnic, religious and cultural syncretism, its democratic vocation and its dizzying economic and technological growth is always a fascinating adventure. With the second largest population on the planet and a huge consumer market, being the third largest market for startups in the world, India offers unparalleled opportunities for business and investor relations in both countries. I am sure that the India Experience will be a success and will greatly contribute to the growing and strategic partnership between India and Brazil
