The economy of European Union, United Kingdom and India is starkly different. While the economy of European Union is the third largest economy in the world with a GDP of $15,167 billion, the economy of India is worth around ₹135.13 trillion and is one of the world's fastest-growing economies and the economy of United Kingdom is the fifth largest economy in the world with a GDP of $3.12 trillion.
The painstaking statistical work of the Cambridge historian Angus Maddison has shown, India's share of world income during 1700s was around 22.6% almost equal to Europe's share of 23.3% at that time, Today, India's share of Global GDP is around 3 % whereas the totals share of European Union and United Kingdom is around 30% and therefore we believe that there is a huge potential to tap into opportunities between the two regions.
