Along with Mesopotamia and Egypt, the Indus Valley Civilization ca 4000-1500BC is amongst the three oldest in the world
The major cities Harappa(3300BC) and Mohenjo-Daro(2500BC) -were well planned, houses built with baked bricks- and had an elaborate system of developed sewage/water systems -centred in what is now western India and Pakistan.
Trade seemed to be a major activity - decimal fractions and uniform weights/measurements were used.The seals found are in various shapes and size. The elegant script though is still being deciphered by scholars
DOING BUSINESS WITH INDIA - THE RIGHT WAY
Through the centuries, India has always been one of the main centres of learning / culture, which has attracted people from all over the world. Trade also flourished and products made here still adorn the most reputable of places
India has a lot to offer, but because of its size, diversity and unique nature of production centres-many in the villages-to take full advantage of the potential, one must either have one's own office here, or at least some sort of representation - which could handle things on similar professional lines
Having a personal rapport with the factories goes a long way, but it is when you want to increase the supply base by adding on more vendors or want to diversify into other fields, that the role of a buying office comes into the picture
It was to cater to this growing demand that INDUS VALLEY was set up in 1983 followed by it's sister concern Greenfields in 1996 - and represents reputable wholesalers/ importers and selected speciality stores for their buying from India.
