• Mayor Ballard to Lead Delegation on Mission to India

    April 12, 2013 No comments

    Mayor Greg Ballard and a delegation of local leaders will depart today on a weeklong economic and cultural trade mission to promote Indianapolis, strengthen relationships and explore economic opportunities in India. This trade mission is rescheduled from a previously planned trade mission in February that was postponed.

    Mayor Ballard, with support of the Indy Chamber, and the Hyderabad Sister City Committee, will travel April 12 through April 18 to the cities of Hyderabad and New Delhi.  The mission will focus on information technology, life sciences, and research organizations and strengthening cultural relationships.  The trip is being funded privately through the Indy Chamber.

    India is the 13th largest trading partner and the 17th largest import market of the United States. With moderate inflation of 7.6 percent in 2012, a growing middle class and a relatively stable political environment, India remains attractive to many U.S. companies, including many Indianapolis-based companies.
