PUTRAJAYA: Some 300 businessmen, academicians and professionals from seven countries are expected to attend a three-day Indian world conference to be held here from Friday.  

Delegates from Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Singapore, Nepal, South Africa, Indonesia and host Malaysia will be attending the 6th Asian Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (Gopio) conference.  

“The purpose of the forum is to promote a better understanding among people of Indian origin in business, culture, academics, travel and youth affairs,” said Gopio Malaysia president Selvarajoo Sundram. 

Mauritius vice-president Rauf Bundhun will open the conference. 

“We believe the conference will enhance the economic growth of the countries with an increase in bilateral trade as well as the growth of the People of Indian Origin (PIO) communities,” Selvarajoo said.
