Message from Her Excellency Ambassador of India to Sweden
I am pleased to know that the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) is organizing the 3° Edition of Buyer-Seller-Meet and Exhibition of Indian Home Décor, Lifestyle, Home Furnishing and Fashion Jewellery & Accessories products in Stockholm from August 26 - 27, 2019 to create and mark the presence of Indian handcrafted products in the Scandinavian market.
The efforts of EPCH to promote Indian handicraft exports sector that employs a number of artisans in rural and semi-rural areas of India and generates employment for MSMEs through its Buyer Seller Meet is particularly praiseworthy.
Indian handicraft products are known for their uniqueness of designs, creativity and craftsmanship. Visitors to the Buyer Seller Meet will have the opportunity to contact reliable suppliers from India and forge long-term business relations and source premium product lines in houseware, home décor, textiles, jewellery & accessories and sustainable and eco-friendly products.
I extend my best wishes to EPCH for a successful Buyer Seller Meet and hope buyers from Sweden will do good business.
