Various reports have suggested that despite being the fastest growing cosmetic market, ½ of India’s population still remains untapped. Through this summit, we provided Indian and EU beauty business leaders with access to the connections, financing, resources and strategic insight that they need to grow their business in India and EU.

The summit achieved its goal of inspiring beauty business leaders from the EU and India about the potential of EU India relations for a deeper commercial relationship in the beauty sector”.
