Expressions of interest for the F&B delegation to India in September 2018 have now closed.

If you have expressed an interest in the mission and not yet received a response, please email india.mission@industry.nsw.gov.au as soon as possible.

In 2016–17, New South Wales (NSW) exported $760 million worth of agricultural produce to India, an increase of 200%. With NSW’s global reputation for ‘clean and safe’ agricultural products, there is substantial potential for further export growth.
