WTC Utah: Virtual Trade Mission to India
Connect directly with business and government leaders from India through various webinars on topics related to doing business or expanding your business in India without leaving your home, hosted by World Trade Center Utah.
Despite being ranked fifth-largest in the world by nominal GDP, India's economy is still characterized as a developing market economy. U.S.-India trade expanded to $142.1 billion in goods and services in 2018 against a backdrop of Indian GDP growth of 7.1 percent. In 2017, India-sourced Foreign Direct Investment into the United States was valued at $13.1 billion. There are tremendous opportunities to create international partnerships with India and elevate your company's global status. As the second fastest-growing economy in the world, India will be more resilient to the current economic downturn than other Asian countries, so plan to act now and participate in India's prosperity.
Virtual Trade Mission participants will represent the state in an effort to generate new business opportunities. We encourage you to register now! Once registered, participants will be able to connect with World Trade Center staff to customize their Virtual Trade Mission experience and help shape the discussion.
