By continually improving quality of what we do along with stakeholder support we are one of the premier most bilateral trade promotion organisations in the UK-India economic corridor.
In 2021, like all organisations due to the impact of Covid UKTNCC has also refreshed its future strategy. For the next 5 years we aim to focus on the opportunities arising from the potential UK-India future trade agreements and trade policies set by the new state government in Tamil Nadu.
Our aims are:
To be a fair and exemplary networking organisation of ethnic origin in the UK promoting international trade, women entrepreneurs, Green growth, bilateral relations and cultural awareness between the UK and India.
To be the first point of contact for UK & Tamil Nadu/India government departments for projects relating to trade and inward investment promotion.

Tamil Nadu is the 2nd wealthiest and highly industrialised state in India with an enviable GDP of $ 290 Billion in 2020-21.
