Indian Industries Association (IIA) has been continuously working for the development of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) and solving their problems for the last 38 years. In this effort, many important programs are organized by IIA, one of which is the Annual MSME Udyami Mahasammelan. The upcoming MSME Udyami Mahasammelan is proposed to be organized in the coming month in Lucknow in collaboration with the MSME and Export Promotion Department of Uttar Pradesh Government and other related departments.
As part of the preparations for the Mahasammelan, the IIA delegation led by National President IIA Mr. Neeraj Singhal met the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath to invite him as the chief guest and to discuss various issues related to the development of industries in the state.

In this meeting, the Hon’ble Chief Minister said that if MSMEs have to compete in the global market today, they will have to pay special attention to the quality and packaging of their products. On this, National President IIA informed the Hon’ble Chief Minister that keeping this need in mind, IIA has kept the theme of this year's Udyami Mahasammelan as "Transforming MSME Towards Industry 4.0 & 48".
