India is Wisconsin’s 18th largest export market (2015). Poised for sustained high growth for the next couple of years, now is the time for Wisconsin companies to seize opportunities in the rising Indian market. Sectors such as energy, environmental, healthcare, high-tech, infrastructure and defense are of particular focus.  At MITA’s June event a beginning exporter will share first impressions of India as a participant in the WEDC India Trade Venture last November, and two experienced exporters will discuss their lasting business success in this increasingly mportant market.
 
Learn from the experiences of three Wisconsin companies- Roving Blue Incorporated (ozone water purification systems) is just beginning to explore India; ABS Global (livestock genetics) and Serigraph Incorporated (manufactured printing/graphics) both have had significant business relationships and success in India.
