India High Technology Mission 2011

International trade is one of the driving forces in the American economy which creates jobs and wealth and accounts for a significant percentage of our economic growth. Minority firms in the United States are primed for exporting and are twice as likely to generate sales from exporting as non-minority-owned firms. Some of the reasons are due in large part to language capabilities, cultural compatibility and business agility.

The U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) is at the center of the federal government's efforts to promote exports. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke will lead a High Technology Business Development Mission to New Delhi, Bangalore, and Mumbai that will highlight export opportunities for U.S. businesses in a broad range of advanced industrial sectors: civil-nuclear trade, defense and security, civil aviation, and information and communications. This trade mission will assist U.S. businesses in initiating or expanding exports to India by making business-to-business introductions, providing market access information, and facilitating access to government decision makers. 

We encourage minority firms to take greater advantage of trade missions in order to lower their costs and risks of entering the export arena.  The application deadline for companies interested in participating in the mission has been extended to Friday, December 3, to encourage more businesses to take advantage of this opportunity.
