Second reverse buyer-seller meet
The book industry in India is worth approximately US$ 2 billion and is growing at around 10 percent every year. India exports books, publications and printing to more than 120 countries around the world and its export in 2009-10 has been over US $250 million.
In this backdrop, CAPEXIL Book Division organized the second Reverse Buyer-Seller meet in Agra on December 22-23, 2010 with importers from focus countries for books, publications and printing panel. As many as 19 importers from 12 countries (Egypt, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Vietnam and Zambia) and 50 exporters (from 9 states of India including 6 metropolitan cities) attended the meet. The highlight of the meet was 1000 one-to-one meetings in 2 days to enforce a mutually beneficial relationship with foreign buyers and to explore business possibilities. The first such meet held in Jaipur in January 2010 was much appreciated by the industry.
