AIA Kicks Off India Trade Mission

About 30 representatives of AIA member companies arrived in Delhi, India and began six days of meetings and outreach Monday in the association’s first-ever trade mission to the country.
AIA Executive Vice President of Defense and International Affairs Mark Esper is heading the delegation, which includes stops in Delhi and Bangalore.

“We are excited about this opportunity to strengthen our partnerships with both the Indian government and the country’s aerospace industry,” Esper said.

The mission comes as more U.S. aerospace companies are looking to India as a possible market for both defense and civil aviation products.

The trip includes meetings with Indian commerce and defense officials. Participants will also meet with U.S. State Department and Commerce Department representatives and the American Chamber of Commerce in India. Esper said the U.S. companies on the mission are investigating doing business directly with the Indian government as well as possible joint projects with Indian companies.
