With its economy fully recovered to the pre-pandemic real GDP level of 2019-20 associated with a strong growth momentum, India now offers better opportunity than ever for companies willing to do business in the country.

Indeed, India has emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic as a stronger jurisdiction thanks to various initiative that the Indian government has been putting into place. For example, there has been an increased digital focus in recent years. The government used the pandemic to push the digitalisation of systems and thus reduce the administrative waiting time.

Another aspect that has been driving simplicity is the move towards becoming more aligned. For example, labour codes have become more unified across the jurisdiction, making it simpler for businesses to operate across multiple states within India.
