WILLING TO have a footprint in China through the products of Madhya Pradesh, Commerce & Industry Minister Babulal Gaur would be leaving New Delhi for Beijing (China) to attend Confederation of Indian Industry’s (CII) ‘Made in India Show’ on September 7.
Organised by the CII and promoted by China Council for the Promotion of Indian Trade, the India show is scheduled to be held at Beijing from September 8 to 12.
Gaur would be accompanied by MP Laghu Udyog Nigam’s managing director B P Singh and deputy general manager (Mrignayani, Delhi) R P Singh, and a team of six industrialists – all from Bhopal. However, the team has no representative from Indore – the State’s industrial centre.
The team of industrialists included Dr R S Goswami (Hind Pharma), Subhash Vitthaldas (Permali Wallace), D K Kohli (D K Insulators), Sanjay & Pankaj Shrivastava (Surendra Composite) and Uttam Ganguli (Bend Joints). While the MPLUN would showcase the handloom & handicraft products of MP, the team of industrialists would present their products in the exhibition.
CII-MP’s Rameshwar Prakash said the State Government has taken a space of 81-sq-metre in the pavilion for showcasing its products and the entrepreneurs could use it free-of-cost.
“The State Government would be paying it to the CII, which would ultimately be free to entrepreneurs,” he said. He added that apart from showcasing of products, the show would act as a platform for business tie-ups.
Union Minister Kapil Sibal would be leading a delegation, which would organise one-on-one and buyers-sellers meets. “LUN would study the market potential of state’s handloom & handicrafts products, apart from showcasing in the pavilion,” said an MPLUN official.
According to sources, after returning to Delhi, Gaur would seek appointments to meet the Prime Minister and few other top union ministers, to press issues related to the State’s industrial development.
