Chandru Iyer, who originally belongs to Nagpur, has been appointed as the new British Trade Commissioner (investment) for South Asia. He is a British national at present.
Chandru believes that investment in the United Kingdom in business can be very fruitful, especially in the technology sector.
Iyer thinks that Vidarbha should consider the possibility of bringing in investments in nonconventional sectors. He is planning to hold a program in Nagpur to interact with local businessmen and entrepreneurs.
Nagpur has generated some successful entrepreneurs in the IT sector and hence he thinks efforts should be made to attract investment in this sector. The health sector also can bring results.
Iyer has been recently appointed as the deputy high commissioner for Karnataka and Kerala. His family still lives in Nagpur in Friends Colony. His father was a Reserve Bank of India employee and his mother was at Punjab National Bank.
He was a student of the Bishop Cotton School and the SFS College in Seminary Hills. He graduated in engineering from the Ramdeobaba College of Engineering. He has an MBA degree too.
