USA: Textile Machinery Makers To Host Indian Delegation
Representatives from more than two dozen Indian companies are set to visit North and South Carolina in May as part of a trade initiative launched by the US Embassy in New Delhi.
Orders worth nearly $10 million have already been placed with US firms in the past year as a result of the project and work to forge closer links with clothing and textile trade associations.
"We are in the process of finalising a visit of 25 Indian companies to Carolina on May 21," deputy commercial counsellor Franklin Foster, of the US Embassy in New Delhi, told the Asia Pulse newspaper.
"We will get these buyers to interact with the machinery manufacturers including visits to the plants there. We will also organise a meeting of the Indian buyers with the cotton suppliers in the US."
