Over 100 exporters will showcase their products at the Kunming fair in China next week with an aim to boost India’s exports there. Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) said the seven day fair will start from June 11. FIEO President Ganesh Kumar Gupta said the fair provides a platform to exporters to exhibit their items and interact with buyers. He will also participate in the China-South Asia Business Forum.
Participants are from various sectors such as leather, jute, textile, garments, handicrafts spices, cosmetics and jewellery, he said in a statement. “This event will be a good opportunity for Indian businesses to showcase their products and establish trade linkages with not only China, but also with countries of South-East Asia,” he added.
These fairs help in increasing exports to China, with which India has huge trade deficit. In 2016-17, the trade gap stood at USD 51 billion as against USD 52.7 billion in the previous fiscal.
