Explore new opportunities in the Indian market

Local businesses throughout the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council area interested in exploring new opportunities in the Indian market are encouraged to sign up for the latest Go East trade mission.

Following a pilot earlier this year, the council has launched another new trade mission to help ambitious local companies explore, target and exploit business linkages in India.

Go East will run from August to November 2018 and enlisted companies will have the opportunity to:

  • approach and arrange a minimum of 5 meetings with potential business partners prior to a 4 day market visit to Mumbai and Pune

Open to all businesses located in the borough, Go East is aimed at those who wish to either export to or source from India.

Why India?
