The Indian Chamber of Commerce and Culture in the Slovak Rupublic (INDCHAM) organized a business mission for its member GA Drilling. After several months of preparation, November 5-12, 2016 was set as week to meet business partners in Delhi and Mumbai. From INDCHAM, Alexander Horvath, Tomas Torok and Rakesh Taurani accompanied founders of Plasmabit (R) technology, GA Drilling Slovakia and organized the B2B meetings as well as presentation towards govermental officials. The purpose of the mission was to find a right partner of joint venture and continuous support in Research and Development. India is key player in geothermal activity thus very interesting partner for GA Drilling company.


The business mission started in Delhi with attending Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Human Resource Development (High Education Division). The presentations went well and both ministries acknowledged the unique product of GAD. State Minister of Finance Arjun Ram Meghwal promised support in several areas. In HRD ministry several agreements were reached especially on PhD study program.


Following day, we led important meeting in organization Niti Aayog with board member and nuclear scientist - Shri V.K. Saraswat, who knew the subject very well and asked relevant questions. Niti Aayog is a Planning and Strategic Committee under Prime Minister Modi and acts as recommendation body for India strategy. If you get a buy in here, your services will be well positioned in India. It was very important to convince one of the greatest scientists in India. Follow up will take place during December and January.


Before we left Delhi to Mumbai we had a pleasure to meet Executive Secretary of EPSI organization - a non-profit education society organization holding major University and Education Trusts, Mr. P.Palanivel. Discussion topic was about Technical Gradudates and PhD program exchanges between India and Slovakia.


The team had some spare time left to see the City Center, India Gate and also visited Slovak Embassy in India, meeting Ambassador Mr. Bertok and his team, discussing economic and commercial support between Slovakia and India. We thank Mr. Bertok for the hospitality and time devoted to us.



In Mumbai we had pleasure to meet two of the biggest Oil and Gas Company in India and presented the patented technology. The negotiations are still ongoing and information undisclosed. Once we have the positive updates and deal closure we will post the annoucement.

In Mumbai, we stayed in beautiful Novotel 5* Hotel on the beach. One could see the differences between luxury and poverty. Right behind the hotel you enter into the slum area and see the opposite side of India.
