More than 80 companies are participating in the three day exhibition.
The India Pavilion will showcase the wide variety of top class Indian
auto parts relating to engine, body and chassis systems, high technology
equipment and parts, innovative hybrid energy parts etc along with
maintenance and tuning equipment and general components. The Expo will
be a platform to explore multiple collaboration opportunities and share
the progressive and future-ready component industry of India.
India’s presence in China has also increased over the years. However,
for a synergistic bilateral economic engagement, there is need for
Indian companies to tap the opportunities in the Chinese market more
closely and to take advantage of its environment. Similarly, with
Chinese automobile companies expressing keen interest in Indian market,
this show will provide an opportunity for them to explore new
collaboration opportunities with the leading Indian auto parts companies
in the development of their supply chain.

and explore new areas of cooperation.
During the inaugural session, the CII – Embassy of India, Beijing book
on “Retracing the Path to Prosperity – Lessons from India-China Business
Partnership” will be released which will showcase the contributions by
Indian companies invested in China. The book will also be a good
reference for the potential investors to understand the strategies
adopted by the successful Indian Corporates in China.
Further, as part of the “India Show” an Indian wine festival is being
organized by Agricultural & Processed Food Products Export Development
Authority (APEDA) and an Indian Cultural and Dance Performance by Indian
