As Switzerland and India celebrate 70 years of cooperation, this webinar intends to help participants navigate some of the complex cultural peculiarities of a changing India. A fast developing economy, a growing middle class and a very young workforce in India has made global businesses vie for a piece of the Indian pie. However, for these very reasons, India can be a complex cultural puzzle to solve, especially due to its extremely heterogeneous population. Generational, linguistic, professional, religious and socio-economic differences within the country make it a glaring mosaic of contrasts, paradoxes and mazes and understanding these can be key to succeeding in the country.
