More than 350 participants including players from Taiwan, China, Korea and Bangladesh will participate at the four-day exhibition – Indplas’12 – beginning October 5 here, organised by the Indian Plastics Federation (IPF).
The organisers are looking forward to receiving investment proposals in the plastic manufacturing industry worth Rs 300 crore for West Bengal during the exhibition.
IPF said it was making efforts for larger participation of local micro, small and medium industries at the exhibition this year.
“We will encourage more MSMEs involved in the plastic products manufacturing industry to take part at the exhibition,” Sourabh Khemani, Co-chairman of the exhibition’s organising committee, said while announcing the schedule of the exhibition here on Thursday.
According to Khemani, the organisation would offer 60 per cent subsidy on stall rent for MSME registered units through National Small industries Corporation.
The exhibition will have a theme pavilion to showcase better usage of non-degradable plastic products.
According to Amar Seth, Chairman of exhibition organising committee and IPF Knowledge Centre, “eastern region would offer ample opportunities for the plastic processing industry, with per capita plastic consumption of only 3.5 kg.”
