Trade Mission: South India & Sri Lanka
Infrastructure, Architecture, Hospitality and Environment
Have you ever dreamed of creating a building to add to India’s rapidly changing skyline? Or does the promise of 40,000 additional hotel rooms needed in Sri Lanka whet your appetite? If so, the 3C Multi-Sector Trade Mission to Chennai, Cochin (India) and Colombo (Sri Lanka) from February 3-8, 2013, organized by the U.S. Department of Commerce, is a must-attend event for you! The dynamic growth of the Indian economy (averaging 8% over the past 10 years) has created a pressing need for housing, hotel and infrastructure development and the country requires significant outside expertise to meet its ambitious targets. Additionally, Sri Lanka, after years of internal strife and conflicts, is poised to attract 2.5 million tourist arrivals by 2016 and the industry estimates it will need an additional 40,000 rooms in the next five years to achieve this target. The current GDP growth over 7% and increasing demand in the infrastructure, hospitality and transport sectors will provide opportunities for U.S companies to expand and grow in these areas. Participants in this trade mission will conduct one-on-one meetings with pre-screened business partners, meet with government officials, enjoy networking events and participate in briefings and site visits. Applications will be accepted through December 20, 2012.
