KUALA LUMPUR: Trade and industry players have given an “encouraging response” to the “Incredible India 2003” exhibition to be held at the Putra World Trade Centre here in December. 

India Trade Promotion Organisation chairman Ashok Jha said participants included leading Indian companies. 

“They will display an array of products, covering automobiles, industrial machinery, electrical goods, packaging machinery, agricultural equipment and machinery, fabrics, garments, jewellery, handicrafts and a variety of consumer products,” he said at a media launch at the Indian High Commission yesterday.  

The mega show is organised by the promotion organisation, an agency of the Indian government, in collaboration with the Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI). 

This is the second exhibition in 15 years organised in Malaysia by the promotion organisation.
