India is a country of many potential opportunities and Utrecht sees this country as an important business partner. Therefore the province led a successful orientation mission to India in September 2010. Through this mission a bridge has been established.
Participating in the mission were Utrecht University, the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences, the University Medical Centre Utrecht, the Chamber of Commerce, the Utrecht Science Park and the recently opened Sustainable Earth Research Centre. The undertaking allowed the Province to sketch a detailed picture of the opportunities India presents Utrecht, especially as regards promoting investments in the region, acquisitions, and the exchange of knowledge and expertise.
Joint second mission
In the months ahead, we will further develop our policy on India in consultation with our partners in Utrecht. An important component of this plan is the organisation of a joint second mission to India, set to take place towards the end of 2012 under the leadership of the King’s Commissioner.
