A HOST OF INDIAN DISTRIBUTORS HAVE FORGED TIES WITH THAILAND-BASED COMPANIES DURING THE FESTIVAL
Geetanjali Rai CHANDIGARH: The five- day Thailand Trade Show at Himachal Bhawan here not only drew crowds from the tricity, but also helped in developing trade ties between the two countries.
Organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP), Ministry of Commerce and Royal Thai government, the show concludes today.
“Indian distributors have shown tremendous interest in developing business partnerships with the Thai manufacturers and distributors who are willing to sell their products in India. They have noticed a huge demand for Thai products in India. We are assisting the Indian dealers and distributors to meet the Thai companies in order to help them forge prospective business ties,” said Pikender Pal Singh, regional director, CII.
Pranda Group from Thailand, which has brought exotic jewels, beautiful showpieces and artificial and gold jewellery, has also tied up with various Indian jewellers including DC Jewellers, JP Jewellers, NikkaMal Jewellers, Arora Sons and Verma Jewellers.
The Tong Garden has tied up with Alcoms and Impacts Private Ltd to sell its wide variety of nuts and other processed and packaged foods items.
Similarly, Theirry Flower Ltd has finalised a deal with the Indian distributor, Candle One, which will distribute and sell its products in India. The special Thai massage by Aazaya Spa will now be available at the Gurgaon-based Salon. Anong Thai Silk too is interested in a local distributor and has had meetings with local firms.
“We have facilitated business to business (B2B) meetings between the traders and distributors of the two countries in the last three days. We would be holding more such meetings to take business ties to a higher level,” said Singh.
