Mumbai, November XX, 2013: Indian Merchants’ Chamber is holding its annual flagship event, ‘India Calling Conference to Yangon, Myanmar from November 24 to 26, 2013. IMC India Calling is an International Conference, to bring together Indian businesses and industry representing various sectors to interact with their counterparts in a host of countries and explore possibilities of forging economic and commercial links, joint ventures and technological cooperation.
This IMC's delegation will be led by Shailesh Vaidya and chief Guest- Vayalar Ravi, Minister of Overseas Indian Affairs, Government of India and will also include other high ranking political leaders and bureaucrats from the Government of Maharashtra. Also, scores of corporate CEOs from various sectors of industry and trade, as well as top educationists from leading universities will attend the conference. Myanmar offers an extraordinary opportunity for business and industry in India in almost all sectors for investment and expansion of business operations primarily being agriculture and agriculture inputs and machinery, generic pharmaceuticals, fabrication, chemicals, packaging, plastic, textiles, wood and legal and finance, to name a few.
KPMG and IMC together will be releasing a ‘Knowledge Paper’, prepared by KPMG, for the flagship annual event of IMC – “India Calling”. Trade relations between India and Myanmar have grown impressively in recent years, with India’s total trade with Myanmar having risen from $ 12.4 million in 1980-81 to $ 1.95 billion in 2012-13. This positive trend has been marked by a rise in both India’s exports to and imports from Myanmar, reflecting the increasing economic and commercial linkages between the two nations.
Giving an overview on India- Myanmar trade, Mr. Shailesh Vaidya, President, IMC, says “This "India Calling" Conference in Myanmar is the culmination of many months of joint planning and execution by Indian Merchants’ Chamber (IMC), the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs in Yangon, and the Indian Consulate in Yangon. Reinforcing their solidarity, the Government of India has also supported this Conference. The Governments of Myanmar and India are lending full support to this conference, because it will be a concrete step ahead in translating India's newly formulated liberalized economic policy into action, as well as a tangible manifestation of Myanmar’s Asian and global trade expansion plans.”

The India Calling conferences highlight opportunities for business development and investment, business match making, industry visits and cultural orientation among the various engagements. Myanmar offers huge potential to Indian business and industry as it is comparatively untapped territory and only recently countries across the world have started taking interest in exploring business and investment opportunities there. It is, therefore, the right time that IMC is mounting this business delegation there.
The three day Conference will begin on November 24 with a technical session followed by B2B meetings. The Conference is supported by Indian Diplomatic Missions in Myanmar, The Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce & Industry (UMFCCI), Indo - Myanmar Chamber and various businessmen of Myanmar.
This India Calling Conference is the thirteenth in the row of a series of such annual events organized by the IMC. This mega-event in Myanmar comprises a galaxy of eminent speakers and delegates from both countries. The event would help to provide an excellent interactive and networking platform for promoting trade and business development opportunities for many diverse sectors and industries in both countries.
