of Understanding (MoU) for Trusted Partner Scheme. The MoU was signed by
Gareth Wynn Owen and Kalyan Gupta.
“The UK is the sixth largest investor in India, with over 600 companies creating
employment and contributing to the Indian economy. Kagool is a great example of
UK investment in India. Since 2016 its footprint has grown 26-fold and it now
employs 260 people in its Hyderabad office, with more to come over the next 3
years. I am confident Kagool will exceed its expansion targets and pave the way for
more UK companies to look at this thriving region.” said Mr. Gareth Wynn Owen,
UK’s Deputy High Commissioner to TS & AP.

Business Visa processing for our staff. This is a valuable step as it supports
Kagool’s rapid pace of expansion,” Kalyan Gupta, Managing Director, APAC
Region, said on the benefits of joining the Trusted Partner scheme.
