UPDATED: The application deadline for the India Trade Mission has been extended to Friday, December 3, 2010.
Earlier this month in Mumbai, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke announced
that he will lead a high-technology trade mission to India next February. The India High
Technology Business Development Mission is focused on U.S. companies that offer
products or services in the civil nuclear, defense and security, civil
aviation, and information communications technology industries and are looking
to either expand their current business in India or are interested in entering
the market for the first time.
If you’re interested in participating in the upcoming trade
mission, time is running out to apply. If your company meets the participation
requirements, complete a
mission application by Nov. 30 to join Secretary Locke in New Delhi,
Bangalore and Mumbai this February. Submitted applications
will be reviewed by industry and market experts, and final participants will be
selected from the most qualified candidates. Application status
notifications will be sent out Dec. 13.
This business development mission will give U.S.
companies access to market information and high-level business and government
contacts, helping them to solidify international business strategies and
advance their projects. They will meet with prescreened potential
business partners, agents, distributors, representatives and licensees, as well
as high-level national and local government officials. The agenda will also
include networking opportunities, country briefings and seminars.
