The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), New Delhi with the support of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, New Delhi is organizing an “INDIA PAVILION” at ‘THE BIG 5 Kuwait’, International Construction Technology & Building Materials Trade Exhibition at the Kuwait International Fair Ground, Mishref, Kuwait from September 14-16 Sept 2015.
Bilateral trade between India and Kuwait currently stands at USD 14.58 billion. Of this, around 84% is accounted for by oil and gas imports. There is clearly a need to deepen and widen the trade basket between the two countries.
Kuwait is currently in the process of diversifying its economy away from oil. Plans are afoot to increase investment in sectors such as real estate, construction of new cities, hospitals, housing units, infrastructure, roads, airports, metro and railway projects, power and transmission, petrochemicals, gas processing and pipelines among others. This represents a major opportunity for Indian companies to step up its bilateral economic relations with Kuwait.
It is in this backdrop that CII is organizing the “India Pavilion” at BIG5 Kuwait”. In addition, the show is also expected to promote joint ventures, technology transfer, marketing opportunities, as well as well as people-to-people contact between the two countries. It would provide an excellent platform for networking and one-to-one business meetings with potential customers.
50 leading companies from India are expected to participate in the India Pavilion. These companies will showcase a wide range of products including building material & construction equipment; bathrooms, kitchens & sanitary ware; marble, ceramic & stone; metal, steel & aluminum; concrete & related products; construction tools; conveying systems; decorative products; electrical systems; facilities management services; finishes (coating, painting, gypsum, tiling); fire suppression & protection; glass & glazing; HVAC; landscaping products & services; building services; communications; pipelines; plumbing & water technology; PMV & related products; safety & security equipment; scaffolding; software & IT; special construction (swimming pools, fountain); thermal moisture, protection & insulation; windows, doors & cladding; wood, plastic & composite, etc.
