The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) is organizing a two-week trade mission to the United States that will provide senior private sector executives and public sector officials from the Indian cold chain industry an opportunity to connect with US cold chain suppliers and equipment manufacturers, as well as high-level executives from some of the world’s largest public refrigerated warehousing companies. This visit is scheduled to take place in May 2011.
The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) will support the mission, which will include participation in the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW)-World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) Annual Convention and Expo, being held from April 30–May 4, 2011 in New Orleans LA. IARW and WFLO are core partners of GCCA. The IARW-WFLO Annual Convention and Expo features 2.5 days of educational programming, a 95-booth exposition, and networking opportunities with more than 600 cold chain professionals from around the world.
Besides attending the convention, the delegation will learn about state-of-the-art US technologies and standards for the cold chain industry through site visits to equipment manufacturers and cold storage facilities in New Orleans, Washington DC, and Atlanta GA. Delegates will be able to observe design, manufacture, demonstration, and operation of US products and services on these visits. The delegation will also engage in discussions with representatives from the US government to learn more about standards being used in the United States.

USTDA supports the creation of US jobs through the export of goods and services for priority development projects in emerging economies. The agency links US businesses to export opportunities by funding project planning activities, pilot projects, and reverse trade missions while creating sustainable infrastructure and economic growth in partner nations.
