City of Hamilton sending trade delegation to India later this month


The City of Hamilton announced Tuesday (Nov. 12) that they would be sending a delegation, headed by Mayor Fred Eisenberger, to India on a trade mission later this month.

From Nov. 17 to 22, the mayor, accompanied by representatives from several Hamilton businesses and the city's economic development staff will visit several cities in the country to promote Hamilton investment and develop business relationships.

Officials from McMaster University, McMaster Innovation Park and Mohawk College will also be part of the delegation to seek out possible research collaboration opportunities, a city press release says.

"India is one of the fastest-growing markets in the world and has significant potential for business partnerships and investment attraction for the City of Hamilton," said Eisenberger in the press release.

The delegation will meet with government officials and Canadian-Indian business councils and will also take part in one-on-one meetings with Indian investors considering a move to Canada as well as those looking to import Canadian-made goods from Hamilton businesses.

New Delhi, Ahmedabad and Mumbai are the cities which the delegation will be visiting and where the focus will be on promoting Hamilton's strengths in advanced manufacturing (aerospace, food and beverage processing), academic research and goods movement.

At a stop in Ahmedabad, Eisenberger will be making a presentation at an event designed to welcome international students to Mohawk College.
