Leaders from Colorado companies, government agencies, education institutions, and economic development organizations have signed on to participate in a Colorado trade and investment mission to India with Governor Polis and the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) on November 4-8, 2019, concluding with a stop in Nepal.
The delegation marks Governor Polis’ first official trade and investment mission abroad and includes a full agenda of company, investor and Indian leadership meetings to discuss best practices, trade and investment opportunities. A primary component of the mission is a collaborative idea exchange centered upon cleantech, smart mobility, and renewable energy.
“I’m excited to embark on my first trade and investment mission to India as Governor. Our economy is the envy of the nation but we can’t sit back. We must continue working to expand into new and emerging markets and create more good jobs in Colorado,” said Governor Jared Polis. “I look forward to building partnerships abroad that will help grow our economy, create good-paying jobs in Colorado and attract investment.”
The trip’s objectives are shaped by the data-driven strategy employed by OEDIT’s Global Business Development team to cultivate foreign direct investment and Colorado’s export promotion, and further supported by Governor Polis’ Bold Four priorities — setting Colorado on a path to 100% renewable energy by 2040, saving people money on health care, implementing free full-day kindergarten and expanding preschool, and ensuring our economy works for everyone while preserving Colorado’s unique way of life.
