How is AKT Strategic Consulting different to other consultants, trade offices and chambers of commerce ?

While Trade offices and Chambers of commerce generally provide information, reports and introductions, we are a boutique consulting firm highly specialised in developing business strategies and representing foreign governments, businesses and brands in India, The Middle East and Australia. We have a strong network of offices in each of these regions with a track record of at least 2 decades in this business.

While most consulting firms are excellent in providing strategies and reports, their implementation is always a challenge. It is either because the reports are generated relying on desk research or the author has only theoretical knowledge. Practical knowledge and our hands on experience helps in formulating sound strategies and implementing them on the ground.

Our expertise is in the in-depth understanding of the market, business & culture, our experience of facilitating trade and investments in these markets for decades, our relationship with senior decision makers and of course the reputation we enjoy out of our excellent track record.
