Our business mission will accompany Prime Minister to India

A business delegation comprising 61 representatives of Czech companies will accompany Prime Minister Andrej Babis and Industry and Trade Minister Marta Novakova on their official visit to India, Thailand and Singapore next week, the ministry and the Confederation of Industry said in a press release today.

The trip will take place on January 13-19. The delegation will include representatives of firms engaged in energy, health care, engineering and aircraft and defence industries.

This is the 10th mission to India organised by the Confederation of Industry since 1993.

Czech exports to India show a growing trend. In January-October last year, Czech firms exported goods worth Kc12.8bn to the country, 2 percent more on the year.

The forthcoming talks with the Indian government are expected to boost not only the Czech automotive industry but also the entry of Czech firms to the Indian market.

Czech exports to Singapore reached Kc6.4bn in January-October 2018.

Political as well as business relations with Thailand have been dampened due to internal developments in the country in recent years. Czech exports to Thailand have amounted to around Kc4bn annually.
