Locke Leads Defense Contractors In Trade Mission To India

Just weeks after the U.S. eased defense industry export restrictions on India, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke will start a five-day trade mission to the country Sunday, leading 24 American businesses in an effort to promote high-tech development.

The delegation is largely composed of top defense and security companies, including Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Palantir Technologies, and night-vision manufacturer FLIR Systems, as well as nuclear power companies and software developers like Intuit.

"Exports are leading the U.S. economic recovery, spurring future economic growth and creating jobs in America," Locke said in a statement. "The business leaders joining me on this mission see the great potential to sell their goods and services to India, helping drive innovation and create jobs in both countries."

The delegation is scheduled to stop in New Dehli, Mumbai and Bangalore.
