The chief guest was Indian Administrative Service (IAS) DPS Kharbanda, chief executive officer-cum-admin secretary, Invest Punjab, and director of Industries and Commerce. He shared that he met several exhibitors from Japan and Germany who have their plants in Pune. “These exhibitors expressed their willingness to setup a plant in Punjab, as their maximum consumers are from Ludhiana,” he added.

Chamber of Industrial & Commercial Undertakings (CICU) president Upkar Singh Ahuja said that this year, the expo has been organised at an expanded scale as CICU is working with the objective to double the export of Punjab. As many as 10 representatives from different countries including Iran, Myanmar, Kyrgyz, Madagascar, Burundi, Mongolia, Ethiopia and Lesotho are attending the exhibition to explore business opportunities and foster international relations, he added.

The Islamic Republic of Iran ambassador Dr Iraj Elahi said that he found significant opportunities for collaboration between Punjab and Iran in this visit to expo. “We will make industrialists, traders in Iran aware about the potential of Punjab industrialists and will also invite industrialists from Punjab to visit us so that they can understand about the demand of products and services in our country,” he said.

Besides, Sahnewal member of legislative assembly Hardeep Singh Mundian and custom commissioner Varindaba Gohil were also present.
