Leading up to the pandemic, India’s civil aviation sector — valued at $16 billion per year — was on a trajectory to become the third largest market globally this year and, potentially, the largest by 2030. Faced with this growing demand, the Government of India launched the country’s first National Civil Aviation Policy in 2016, which lays out plans for modernizing existing airports, developing new facilities, and attracting greater investment in India’s aviation sector. 

The U.S.-India ACP Business Briefing will provide U.S. businesses with information on India’s aviation plans and access to decision-makers from the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Directorate General of Civil Aviation, Airports Authority of India, Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, and Indian airports and airlines. 

The U.S.-India ACP is a public-private partnership that was established in 2007 to provide a forum for unified communication between the Government of India and U.S. public and private sector entities in India. The ACP works directly with the Government of India to support India’s civil aviation sector modernization priorities. To join the U.S.-India ACP, visit
