International exposure for tech units

Jamshedpur, Feb. 12: The Indo-Asean & Indo-US/Canada Buyer Seller Meet-2008, which will be held in Calcutta from February 25, will see many engineering industries of Jamshedpur taking part in it to showcase their products.

Organised by Engineering Export Promotion Council, the two-day meet would witness participation of engineering companies from India and abroad.

The meet will provide scope for one-to-one business discussions and negotiations for engineering products and services.

Engineering Export Promotion Council regional director Anima Pandey, who was in Jamshedpur today, said the objective for organising such a meet is to generate awareness among industrialists about exporting goods.

“Apart from Tata Steel and Tata Motors, there are numerous industries in the Singhbhum-Kolhan region which has potential for export. Lack of awareness about government policies on export is holding the industries from exporting their products to international markets,” said Pandey.

Pandey, who was here to interact with industrialists about the latest government policies on export, said the Union government is providing a number of facilities to promote exports but in the absence of awareness, industries with export potential are lagging behind.

“This meet will provide a platform to the buyers and sellers of engineering goods. The meet will also help dealers and distributors of engineering products to exchange their ideas on the latest developments in the engineering sector,” she said.

During an interactive session held at Chambers Bhavan today, the members of Singhbhum Chamber of Commerce and Industry and other trade and industrial bodies wanted to know how to overcome the complexities involved in implementing the government policies.

The industrialists at the interactive session suggested that Engineering Export Promotion Council should come up with a centre in the Singhbhum-Kolhan region which will facilitate the exporters to market their products as well as to keep themselves abreast with the latest information about international markets.
