Trade Delegation Heads to India

May 24, 1906 ·

A delegation of industrialists is heading to India on a big trade mission that some believe will help kick start the British economy.

It will be the largest business delegation that this country has ever taken abroad.

Many of the industrialists joining the trip were cautiously optimistic, saying they were starting from a pretty low base, as other European countries such as Belgium trade more with India than we do.

It is hoped that India will open its markets up to greater foreign trade, particularly in the manufacturing sectors like steel and mechanics, as well as the brewing industry.

Representatives from the East India Company hope the trip will open up new avenues of trade, especially through the purchase of items such as food, tea, jute and rubber, which are much needed as a result of the current economic and environmental climate.
