Exploring Business Opportunities in China, India and Vietnam
Recently Mr. Garcia participated as a member of a US delegation to the India Business Summit led by Under Secretary for International Trade, Franklin Lavin on November 29-30 2006. Leaders of US business, industry, education and state and local government participated in this summit which allowed them access to India¡¯s high-level business, industry and government representatives and opportunities to gain timely insights into the country¡¯s trade and investment climate. He also traveled to China and Vietnam to talk to business and industry executives and high level government officials. Mr. Garcia will be presenting this trip report to explore business opportunities in these countries. This is a rare opportunity to gain the first hand information on these three hot growing markets in Asia.
The US-India relationship is undergoing great changes. The two countries, politically and economically distant for much of the late twentieth century, now find their national interests converging in many respects.
