Following the establishment of a wholly owned subsidiary in Delhi this month, UNIQLO will soon begin recruiting local talent as it prepares to open its store in the world’s fastest-growing major economy.

“The company will focus on expanding its presence in the capital region before considering other areas,” it said.

“Our entry in India represents a significant step in our company’s global strategy, and we are very pleased and excited to be part of the country’s growing retail market,” said Tadashi Yanai, chairman, president and CEO of Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. the operator of the UNIQLO brand. “We look forward to introducing UNIQLO and our high quality, affordable LifeWear apparel in India, while at the same time contributing to the expansion of the Indian economy.”
