India as a supply chain partner & alternative to China

WTC 400x56

With the growing uncertainty of COVID-19’s effect on global supply chains as well as increasing challenges of sourcing in China, it is vital for Utah companies to optimize their production and distribution of products by looking for new partners and opportunities. This session of our Virtual Trade Mission will focus on operations and supply chain solutions in India.

Speaker: Dustin Daugherty, Head of North America Business Development


Despite being ranked fifth-largest in the world by nominal GDP, India’s economy is still characterized as a developing market economy. U.S.-India trade expanded to $142.1 billion in goods and services in 2018 against a backdrop of Indian GDP growth of 7.1 percent. In 2017, India-sourced Foreign Direct Investment into the United States was valued at $13.1 billion. There are tremendous opportunities to create international partnerships with India and elevate your company’s global status. As the second-fastest-growing economy in the world, India will be more resilient to the current economic downturn than other Asian countries, so plan to act now and participate in India’s prosperity.
