The global economic growth rate reduced to 3.5% in 2012 compared with 4% in 2011. The situation in India mirrored this global trend. India's growth rate fell to 5.5% driven by lower industrial production in core sectors, slow internal investment, reduced urban consumption and high inflation."

This state of the art kitchen will produce 15,000 meals per day to cater to domestic and international airlines. The facility has been well received by the airline industry. The unit has reported a thirty percent increase in overall business." Trident, Hyderabad consisting of 326 keys is scheduled to open in June 2013. The Company will manage the hotel.
