Economic mission to India

Does your company operate internationally in sustainable food systems, medical technology or Key Enabling Technologies (KET)? And are you curious about your business opportunities in India? Then take part in the trade mission to India. Prime Minister Mark Rutte intends to join part of the mission.

The Indian Space Programme has taken giant strides in space technology and its applications in the last two decades, supported by government funding and a vision to use space technology for societal benefits. The Indian government recently introduced new regulations and allowed for private players to participate in end-to-end missions, organized by the Indian space agency, ISRO. International players, through partnerships with Indian companies, can leverage these opportunities in the country. India’s space agenda for 2020-2030 is full of ambitious plans and challenging missions, which will be made possible by the advancement of emerging technologies in Industry 4.0. As the launch schedule gets further intensified, India will need a lot of new satellites each year. Indian industry ecosystem realizes the demand and is gearing up to build systemic capacity to be able to deliver space systems. The transition is slowly taking place where the private industry (the NewSpace) can achieve the required volumes of satellites/launch vehicles under ISRO supervision while allowing ISRO to focus completely on novel technology development over a longer horizon. 

All these developments will open new doors for the Dutch industry to not only supply hardware and related technology in the upstream side but also for players in related segments such as geo-spatial data, UAV’s & Drones, sensor technology etc. to explore business opportunities in India.  There are also opportunities for collaboration in areas such as satellite imaging and remote sensing, which can have significant applications in agriculture, climate monitoring, and disaster management.

Date: 10 – 14 Sept 2023
