India Trade Promotion Organisation invites application for participation in 17th Indo-Malaysia Trade Expo & Deepavali Carnival 2018 at Open Car Park B, National Sports Complex, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 27th October to 5th November 2018.

The Indo-Malaysia Trade Expo & Deepavali Carnival has been rated as the largest exhibition of its kind in the Asia pacific region and a one stop exhibition showcasing the wide varieties of India’s ethnic colour and life. The display profile would include handicrafts, jewellery, decorative items, leather goods, toys, kitchenware, beauty products, ayurvedic products, office stationery, textiles, home décor, bed sheets, carpets, women’s garments, photo prints, souvenirs, etc., with emphasis on B2C segment. Besides, there will be specific podiums showcasing tourism, arts & culture, fashion & handicrafts. The Show attracts over 5,00,000 visitors not only from Malaysia but also international visitors specifically from the Asian region.

Malaysia has one of the largest communities of Indian origin in the world, numbering close to two million (about 7% of Malaysia’s population), which provide immense scope for Indian lifestyle products. The signing of India-Malaysia Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA) in February 2011 was an important milestone in the trade and economic relations between the two countries. This agreement came into effect from July 2011, but even in the short period, the benefits are evident in the increase in bilateral trade from US$ 10.39 billion in 2010-11 to US$ 16.93 billion in 2014-15. After a short decline of US$ 12.79 billion in 2015-16 due to global slowdown of the economy, the trade ties between the two countries increased to US$ 14.16 billion during 2016-17. It is expected that the India-Malaysia CECA will facilitate and encourage further expansion of trade and economic co-operation between the two countries.
