Clown time is over…But what’s next for UK infrastructure?

Spare a thought for Jeremy Hunt, increasingly beleaguered Chancellor of the UK Exchequer: an atavistic Dickensian dad forced to choose between which of his children to give away to save on brussel sprouts and mince pies at Christmas. Because, after the pantomime chaos of Kwarteng clownaonomics and the shortest-lived Premiership in British history, the long-awaited (and ...

The Power of Dreams…India is refashioning it’s future as an Economic Powerhouse

  Every man (every woman too) should have a dream it’s good to dream: and for me, at the moment, just in case you’re wondering, that means a lengthy spell on a Goan beach, interrupted only by breathless news that Donald Trump has lost the power of speech. That would do me a power of ...

Seventy Five Years on, and Indian Infrastructure is a Global Success Story

Time matters with India’s Real Estate revitalisation

KPMG reported last month that Indian Real Estate Sector has now entered a “revitalisation mode”, with aggregate growth projected to reach $ 650 Billion by 2025 and topping $850 Billion by 2028: the average yearly contribution of real estate to the Indian economy will more than double from its current 7% by 2025.
