Four-day global expo ‘Vibrant Tamil Nadu’ comes to a close

All Members of Parliament from the State would work together for the development of Madurai airport, said Su. Venkatesan, MP, at the valedictory function of ‘Vibrant Tamil Nadu,’ here on Thursday.

The four-day global expo and summit, organised by the Tamil Nadu Chamber Foundation, to showcase the State’s potential in the kitchen equipment and food processing sector, concluded on Thursday. Mr. Venkatesan said he would lend his full support for the development of trade and industry in south Tamil Nadu.

The organisers said 6,000 business delegates from across the globe visited the 200 stalls at the expo.

Lauding the Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce and Industry for organising the expo, Bharath K.S., Chairman, Aparajitha Corporate Services, in his address, said the organisation must develop a metric to assess the performance of this year’s expo, to make the exhibition more successful for the next editions.

Pointing out the high demand for spices from South Tamil Nadu, he said that through proper branding and packaging, the regional players could enter international markets.

During the expo, memorandums of understandings with nine countries were signed.

Terming the expo as a grand success, S. Rethinavelu, Creative Head of the expo, said the food expo was a first step in the long-term goal of increasing the State’s export value. President of Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce and Industry N. Jegadeesan and expo chairman Tirupathi Rajan were present.
