US Nuclear business mission arriving in India
The US India Business Council (USIBC) and NEI are bringing the largest trade mission ever to visit India over the next few days. It is expected that the delegation will meet with senior Indian government officials, the leaders of India’s top public-sector undertakings, and senior executive counterparts from Indian companies.
The mission includes over 50 senior US commercial nuclear executives representing more than 30 of the world’s leading commercial nuclear companies including General Electric, Westinghouse, Bechtel Nuclear, The Shaw Group, Babcock &Wilcox, Black & Veatch, CH2M Hill, Uranium One, Thorium Power, and USEC, among others.
This is the first visit of the US nuclear mission after the Indo-Us Nuclear deal was signed on October 11, 2008 in Washington. The Indian nuclear power production market is projected to be worth around $150 billions.
