“Polaris has identified India as a growth market after developing business in the region working in Oman and in India with a range of mostly maritime businesses which is a core specialism of Polaris,” he said. “We feel we are in the right place at the right time with India. We started working in India in 2015 but since then Brexit has made trading relations with India even more important. The visit was very insightful and we are already working with our contacts to help promote our services and clients in India and the UK. Our www.IndiaGBnews.com website meanwhile is growing by filling a gap in the market, providing a vehicle for positive bi-lateral news. India and the UK are natural allies as Theresa May said in Delhi and with so much shared language and culture we believe this is an ideal niche to grow Polaris’ services.”
