Members of the Council,

Dear Sir,

Re: Confirmed Exhibitions/Fairs for participation of SRTEPC- members for the year 2018-19 under MAI Scheme

As part of the Council’s Export Promotion Programmes for the year 2018-19 in various leading markets – both in India and abroad, the Council is glad to inform you that the Ministry of Commerce (MoC), Govt. of India has approved the following Events under the Market Access Initiative (MAI) Scheme:

Sr. No.

However, one Event under the Serial No. 4 above: TEXFUSION in London, UK, which the Council had earlier proposed to the Ministry for organizing participation of its member-companies, since the Ministry is currently reviewing proposals of all Events, submitted by various EPCs for organizing participation of their member companies in Int’l Fairs in the European & North American Regions, a final decision on all the Programs including TEXFUSION of SRTEPC will be conveyed by the Ministry to the Council shortly.

Considering the above mentioned confirmed Events, and the other Event (TEXFUSION in UK) which is on hold by the Ministry, the Council requests you to confirm your participation in the specific Fairs of your company’s interest by filling-in the enclosed Reply Formvery shortly. Based on your confirmation of participation in specific Fairs/Events, the Council will subsequently provide detailed information for each of the Events in due course. For the other proposed program of the Council in UK (TEXFUSION), which is currently on hold by the Ministry, as soon as the Council receives the decision of the Ministry for holding the same in the European Region, we propose to come back to you with appropriate details immediately.

Your advance inputs about your company’s interest in participation in the above-mentioned Events will help the Council organize the same effectively with rewarding outcomes.

As you are aware, the Ministry of Commerce has already discontinued earlier proposals for organizing Exhibitions under the Market Development Assistance (MDA) Scheme, and accordingly in its place, since the last year onwards, all approved Events/Fairs of our Govt. are being organized under the Market Access Initiative (MAI) Scheme. Hence, though the participating member-companies will not receive any direct reimbursement of a part cost of their participation charges, all participation fees in the approved Events will be subsidized to the member-exporters due to MAI funding from our Govt.

In view of the above, as part of your advance planning, we look forward to receiving your tentative confirmation for participation in those Events of your company’s interest, which will be held during 2018-19. In this context, you may kindly be assured that since you will send us tentative confirmation now for participation in your specified Events, subsequently, for any reason, if your company is not able to participate in the particular program/s, you will be allowed to change your decision without any difficulties, whatsoever.

We look forward to receiving your feedback in duly filled-in REPLY FORM.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,
