While there are known U.S. companies investing in India, there are many opportunities for successful Indian companies to invest in the United States. From Sept. 27 through Sept. 28, Washington’s first Summit on U.S.-India Trade and Commerce will touch on these prospects, focusing on agriculture, bio-tech and medical research, education, clean-tech, infrastructure, manufacturing, nano-technology, pharmaceuticals, real estate and investment, tourism, and renewable energy.
The summit is organized by the Washington State and India Trade Relations Action Committee (WASITRAC) in collaboration with the Seattle Center Foundation, Consulate General of India in San Francisco, Port of Seattle, City of Seattle, and UW’s Foster School of Business. It will take place during the Next Fifty, a six month long celebration marking the 50th anniversary of the Seattle Center and Seattle’s first world fair.
WASITRAC is a non-profit advocacy group. WASITRAC facilitated missions with Indian states headed by Port of Seattle CEO Tay Yoshitani, Congressman Jim McDermott, Lt. Brad Owen, and others. (end)
