India is now set to become a US$ 5 trillion economy in the next five years and the Indian industry will remain the principal growth engine for achieving this target. “Due to this, the best of the best would be exhibited at the EXCON 2019.” Sri Lanka’s delegation will be organized by the Ceylon Chamber.
