NEW DELHI - The commerce ministry will organise a four-day export fair in Istanbul in February next year with over 150 Indian companies likely to showcase their advanced engineering products in the Turkish capital.
The main objective of the event, called India Show, is to promote the country’s image and provide a platform to Indian exporters to showcase their strengths and capabilities in an emerging market and developing country like Turkey, the commerce ministry said in a statement.
The event, scheduled to be held Feb 3-6, will be organised by EEPC India, formerly Engineering Export Promotion Council, which works under the commerce and industry ministry.
The show will enable India to get closer to fast-growing markets in Eurasia and the Middle East and it will be our endeavour to highlight India as a technology hub for manufacturing industry, R. Maitra, executive director of EEPC India, said in a statement.
India Show will coincide with industrial exhibition World Industry Fair-2011 organised by Hannover Messe. India will be a partner country for the event.
India would also sign a memorandum of understanding with the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce, aimed at strengthening economic relations between the two countries, during the show, Maitra said.
