Aggarwal to serve another term of two years

Parveen Aggarwal gets elected as president of OPA

During the annual general meeting of the Offset Printers Association (OPA), the house unanimously elected Parveen Aggarwal as the president for another term of two years. The elections were held in the presence of Ashwani Gupta, vice president at All India Federation of Master Printers (AIFMP), who attended the AGM of OPA as the chief guest. It is obvious to mention that OPA is the affiliate association of AIFMP.

Managing director of BBF Industries, Aggarwal is a dynamic personality and is socially very active and known figure of the city. Declaring his name as the president of OPA, Ashwani Gupta said, “OPA is a most active association, today I can say it proudly that the man behind the growth of this association is none other than Aggarwal and his team. The teamwork I have noticed today is unparalleled, and I will cite the example of OPA at various platforms so that other associations can learn a lesson from it.”

Speaking on the occasion, Aggarwal thanked the members for their faith and said I will try my best to serve the printers. We will mark out goals for the next two years for the growth of the industry in general and the printing and packaging industry in particular.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
