India trip can expand possibilities
As part of my mission to keep North Carolina competitive in a global economy, I am excited to travel to India in February with the Center for International Understanding (CIU), which is part of the University of North Carolina system.
CIU’s vision for business policy and education leadership is to make North Carolina the most globally engaged state in the nation. This vision runs parallel to my goals as chairman of the House Commerce and Job Development Committee of advancing business growth, promoting innovation and helping the private sector create jobs.
I will be traveling with 20 other participants, including a bipartisan group of five N.C. House representatives, four senators and several other North Carolina leaders. The group departs for the 10-day trip on Feb. 7. We will travel to Mumbai, Bangalore, Agra and Delhi. The trip’s itinerary includes meetings with business professionals, Indian company leaders and a trip to the Indian Institute of Management.
The growing Indian population in North Carolina gives us a tremendous opportunity to advance private-sector investment and job growth through expanded trade and innovation in our state. I welcome your input, advice and suggestions as to how I might make the most of this trip and keep our state competitive for economic development opportunities with India.
