It ranks among the Top Ten industrial nations as one of the most popular investment partners. Diverse industry branches are greatly profiting from the high quality of life, the young society and an increasing purchasing power despite the current economic crisis. Among these is the construction sector, which has seen a boom in the construction, renovation and restructuring of both industrial and private buildings. Another sector showing exceptional growth is the food industry, since there is a growing demand among the people of the subcontinent for modern and hygienically packed products of all sizes. Then there is the pharmaceutical industry, which is reporting constantly rising figures due to an influx of demand from abroad, as also the car industry, which must cater to the growing demand for private cars as well as providing modern means of transport for people and goods. Not to forget the communication service providers who are networking a huge country with optical fibre technology, whose capacity in this area has not yet been fully exploited.
