Global Trade Venture to India
Presented by: Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation
Location: Delhi, Mumbia, and Hyderabad, India Time: November 12-24, 2016
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) invites companies to take part in a global trade venture to India in November.
As India’s population and economy grow, its government is planning massive infrastructure projects that will require industrial machinery, construction equipment and supplies, and engineering and other services. With a growing population, India has a high demand for agricultural equipment and techniques, as well as processed foods. General economic growth is also translating into growth of manufacturing in India across all subsectors.
This trade venture’s goal is to connect Wisconsin companies with potential buyers, distributors and other partners in these markets — suitable for companies that are not yet exporting to India. In addition, companies that are already exporting into this market can take part in the trip to enhance their business ties in India and expand their market presence.
The global trade venture will take place Nov. 12-22, and will include segments in Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad. New Delhi, India’s capital and seat of government, is part of the larger Delhi metro area, home to 25 million people (making it the world’s second most populous city, after Tokyo). Mumbai, part of a metro area of 21 million, is India’s commerce and finance hub. Hyderabad, with a metro area population of 12 million, is one of India’s fastest-growing cities, with an economy focused on information technology.
In each city, participating companies will take part in customized business meetings with potential local partners hand-picked for their companies by Wisconsin’s in-country authorized trade representative based on the Wisconsin companies’ strengths, needs and preferences.
Each participant in the global trade venture will also receive market intelligence specific to his or her company, detailing considerations to keep in mind when introducing the company’s product or service into these markets. With all their appointments arranged for them, participants will be free to focus on business rather than logistics and scheduling.
The program registration deadline is Oct. 13. For more information, visit InWisconsin.com/indiatrade.
