Another successful year for IITF

The much talked about India International Trade Fair 2004 being organised in New Delhi, India came to a grand conclusion yesterday. Three years after repositionining itself as a business-oriented fair, IITF attracted a large number of foreign firms this year. Over 300 foreign companies from 28 countries participated in the fair this year. the figures are better than last year's tally of 240 foreign firms from the same number of countries and 2002’s count of 140 companies from 24 countries. Most interestingly, there were about 80% repeat visits of foreign participants to the trade fair. The fair also provided a window to showcase India’s prowess in sectors like information technology (IT), power and agriculture.
