Ports and Marine Technology Trade Mission to India Planned for November
The International Trade Administration is organizing a ports and marine technology trade mission to India for Nov. 9-15. This mission will seek to introduce U.S. firms and U.S. trade associations to India’s rapidly expanding ports and marine technology market and assist U.S. companies to pursue export opportunities in this sector.
The mission to India is intended to include representatives from leading U.S. companies and U.S. trade associations with members that provide state-of-the-art ports and marine technologies, including equipment and services for security, logistics, vessel tracking, oil spill detection and contingency preparedness, dredging, underwater exploration and mapping, among other goods and services. Participants will receive market briefings and participate in customized meetings with key port officials and prospective partners in Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Kochi (Cochin). As an optional add-on stop, interested participants can also visit the National Institute of Oceanography in the State of Goa.
A minimum of 15 and a maximum of 20 companies and/or trade associations will be selected to participate in the mission. U.S. companies already doing business in the target markets as well as U.S. companies seeking to enter these markets for the first time are encouraged to apply by Aug. 15. The DOC will review applications and make selection decisions on a rolling basis beginning May 14.
