NH Companies Sought for Trade Mission to India

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Responding to increasing interest from Indian aerospace agencies to create US partnerships, the State of New Hampshire’s International Trade Resource Center is inviting aerospace suppliers to join a special trade mission to India in November. This high-profile mission, led by the US Department of Commerce, will connect New Hampshire-based suppliers with the key Indian government agencies and industrial powerhouses who are driving one of the world’s most dynamic aerospace sectors.

Recent deals between the US and India will further enhance opportunities in the defense and aerospace sectors. Several Indian aerospace agencies have already approached New Hampshire companies this year for their unique, high-quality products and the U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that over $50 billion in civil and defense procurements will be made by Indian firms and government agencies in the next five years. 

Trade mission participants will spend five days meeting with industry groups and Indian government agencies such as the Indian Ministry of Defense, the Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation, the Airport Authority of India, the Indian Space Research Organization and the Society of Indian Aerospace Technologies and Industries. Each New Hampshire company will also have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one meetings and site visits with potential partners in the cities of New Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad. In addition, the delegates will have detailed briefings in India by the U.S. Departments of Defense, State and Commerce.  

The trade mission will occur November 9-13, 2009, with the NHITRC organizing the New Hampshire delegation. Space is limited to 12 companies, so interested applicants are encouraged to contact the International Trade Resource Center as soon as possible.
