Business in Mumbai

Mumbai is considered to be the finance and business hub of India. The country´s most important container port Jawaharlal Nehru Trust Port (JNTP) is located in Mumbai. On that account, almost half of the Indian foreign trade is handled in Mumbai. Further economically important industries like finance, textile, chemical, car and electronic are also located in this megametropolis.

Based on the city´s enormous sales market, its young, educated and English speaking working population, its ideal geographical position and not to forget due to its unique “Mumbai-Lifestyle” many Indian and foreign firms located their corporate headquarters in the commercial centre of Mumbai.
