Northern Ireland will have the chance to sell itself to business leaders from India at the end of June when around 300 delegates from the region arrive in Belfast.

They'll be taking part in Global India Week, which has been organised by Belfast City Council alongside business organisation Horasis and Invest NI from June 22-29 in the Europa Hotel in Belfast.

The invitation-only annual summit brings together business and political leaders involved in the Indian economy and will also host business representatives from Northern Ireland.

It was last held last year in Antwerp, Belgium and key speakers this year include Anand Sharma, the Minister of Commerce and Industry for the Government of India.

The conference will take place in the Europa Hotel but the international delegates will visit other venues in the city during their visit including the City Hall and Titanic Belfast.

Belfast City Council are also organising a programme of events planned to highlight all aspects of Indian culture in Belfast from Indian dance, film and food during the week.

"There are many major events to look forward to in Belfast this year but Global India Week is without doubt, among the highlights," Lord Mayor of Belfast Alderman Gavin Robinson said.

"This will be a tremendous opportunity to showcase Belfast and put it in the global map as well as bolstering our international trade and investment opportunities."
