India is calling - at least that's what we were told a few years back by our now former premier Will Hodgman.
And he wasn't alone, he took one of Tasmania's most notable sporting exports along for the ride with cricketer Ricky Ponting made our Ambassador for Tasmania in the cricket mad country.
The push back in 2016 seemed fairly obvious, open up new markets into India, where we can sell to more than 1.3 billion people.
At the time Mr Hodgman said "We are breaking new ground in economies that are among the largest and fastest growing in the world and having Ricky Ponting in our team will be a distinct advantage given his already established connections."
But what has come of it?
With the burgeoning crisis of coronavirus forcing a big halt in trade to China, it puts a big spotlight on other areas for growing trade.
How that plays out remains to be seen, but if it hits the trade for some of Tasmania's major exporters in the medium to long-term, we will need to look elsewhere.
Which is why questions are being asked about what we are doing in India.
In a lot of ways selling to India should be easier than our other big Asian export markets because of the shared history as a British colony.
But it's just our 12th biggest export market, and appears to be going backwards according to recent ABS statistics.
State Labor leader Rebecca White is calling for more, recognising the opportunity which exists.
She is right when she says that diversifying our markets is important.
Hopefully the new Gutwein Government and the people behind the scenes in the export space are looking very hard at what they can do to spread the exposure to blips internationally.
It's certainly difficult for our Tasmanian companies, particularly all but the biggest, to deal in the international export space without some assistance from government.
They need help to open doors in India, and anywhere else that may provide an opportunity to spread more of our products and expertise to the world.
