Clean-Energy Trade Mission

Beijing, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong, China (January 8–13)
Kolkata and Bangalore, India (January 14–18)

China and India, two powerhouse economies, are seeking to diversify their energy sources while reducing carbon emissions from sustained economic growth. This trade mission is organized by the Department of Commerce and will visit five cities in those two countries. It will be an especially valuable opportunity for U.S. exporters offering clean-energy and energy-efficiency technologies—such as renewable energy, clean coal, distributed generation, and biofuels—to make contacts and sales.
