New Delhi , Nov. 12

THE stage is set for launching the India International Trade Fair (IITF) here on Sunday, the twenty-fourth in an annual series, showcasing the milestones the industry has traversed in its growth and modernisation trajectory in diverse areas, besides providing an authentic platform for trade exchanges, technology transfers and exploration of joint ventures between domestic and foreign firms.

Disclosing this to newspersons here, the India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO) Chairman-cum-Managing Director, Mr N. N. Khanna, said President Dr A.P.J.
