Indore is the largest city in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh and for the second year in a row has won the Swachh Survekshan Survey as India’s cleanest city.
Indore is the financial capital of MP, is an education and mineral resources hub and the state has a major agribusiness economy. In addition, India’s IT giants such as Infosys and TCS are setting up major centres there – Infosys is locating an IT development centre in Indore which will employ about 13,000 and TCS is building a campus there.
The State of Madhya Pradesh has 75 million people.
Indore holds a highly successful “Global Investors Summit” each year.
Definitely another one of India’s “tier 2” cities worth putting on your trade and investment mission list.

Cities are now branded more than countries or regions.London is a brand in a way England is not.People know Bombay more than Maharashtra. India’s tier 11 cities have identities which metros lack.There are many like Indore- Jaipur,Hyderabad,Thiruvananthapuram ( a mouthful), Mysore and not to forget the ultramodern Chandigarh and the picturesque Simla. Steve, your blog is now making a difference and should soon emerge as a brand !
