PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is heading to India this week to cultivate trade and investment opportunities. 

Brewer will lead an Arizona trade mission that includes the Arizona Commerce Authority. She plans to meet with prominent figures in Indian government, as well as global leaders in software development, cyber security, data centers, aerospace, infrastructure development and renewable energy.

In February, Brewer was among nine state governors to address the India Business Forum in the nation's capital.

India is recognized as the world's second-fastest growing economy, and is projected to take the top spot by 2015. India also is the most rapidly-growing market for U.S. exporters.

"With exports from Arizona to India recently up 78 percent, India represents an emerging market and area of significant opportunity," said Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority.

The governor will also focus on promoting Arizona's No. 1 export-oriented industry: tourism. In 2012, more than 38 million global visitors traveled to Arizona, spending $19.3 billion throughout the state. Daily, that equates to around $53 million in contributions to the state economy.
