The February issue of TFT is significantly more intriguing to peruse having the cover on recent Delhi HC order on Pragati Maidan, interview of
Nirmala Sitharaman, the commerce and Industry minister of India and news from around the globe. IEIA Open Seminar 2017 release has
been declared and will be held at BCEC, Mumbai. The event has been anticipated in Mumbai since long and will clearly prevail in it’s target of contacting fraternity from west India. There has been another pattern getting for this workshop to be held in an exhibition venue, BCEC will host the event, interestingly for the first time. Demonetization impact is yet incredible as the vast majority of the of all sizes of shows are limiting the size, putting off the event or notwithstanding,cancellations. Recently held IIJS Signature at BCEC has also been affected and had to release hall number six
of BCEC and settle for less. Indeed, even the visitor footfalls for the show has been hit. There has been a loads of argument in support and against the demonetization. However, the recent world bank rating and report and it’s impact on MSME and SME sector has hit the exhibition space , direct or indirect way. Vibrant Gujarat is another event hit by a similar reason, however, being overseen by government of of Gujarat, the impact has not been insignificant on the same. Mani Shankar Iyer, in a guest column composes more on the event in current issue, however, not exceptionally positive, TFT dependably supports news and content and not simply going about as data pamphlet. We should trust that the impact of demonetization will go dim in next budgetary year and there will be positive impact on the segment to move speedier than the financial year going on. This edition of TFT has preferable perusing than the last, as we generally attempt to enhance the substance each issue. While we ask you to send in your inputs. Inviting
