The Indian Printing Packaging & Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA) will be sending a delegation to ‘Sri Lanka Print 2018’ (Collate 2018) exhibition, scheduled to be held from 16-18 March 2018, at Colombo Exhibition & Convention Centre, Colombo, Sri Lanka. The delegation, under the leadership of president, IPAMA, will be attended by around 28 exhibitors under the banner of IPAMA, which is responsible for promoting the Indian Graphic Arts Industry as a whole and different types of machinery and allied products in particular of its registered members. The participation of exhibitors from India will increase the bilateral trade relations between the two countries.
IPAMA has already approached the Ministry of MSME for providing financial assistance to the eligible participants under the International Cooperation Scheme of MSME. Apart from government assistance, the association is also extending some additional benefits for its members, which include return air ticket up to Rs. 25,000 and financial assistance against shipment of machines up to Rs. 50,000.
IPAMA is closely working on this project to ensure maximum participation from companies.
Sri Lanka Association of Printers (SLAP), which is organizing ‘Sri Lanka Print’ exhibition, was established in the year 1956 for developing the printing industry in Sri Lanka. SLAP is also a member of the Asia Print Association along with India, China, etc. IPAMA president, who is leading the delegation, is also president of Asia Print Association.
The Sri Lankan market is ideal for the products and the services that Indian companies can offer and also a great way to network with other industry members for a growing customer base.
During the visit to Sri Lanka, the delegation will meet the manufacturers, industrialists, importers and exporters of Sri Lanka.
