At the opening of the fair

Joining the three-day event that gathers 120 leading Indian producers and over 250 international firms, they are looking for cooperation chances and partnerships in promoting traditional silk products from their province.

Lam Dong’s silk production has been thriving recently after years in oblivion. During 1997 – 1996, the entire province turned out 500 tons of silk threads and 1.8 million meters of silk. Now it produces 1,600 tons of silk threads on an annual basis.

Organized by the Indian Silk Export Promotion Council, the fair also features business matching events, fashion shows, and seminars.

It is expected to draw 10,000 visitors and help participating companies reel in over USD 20 million in revenue.

India is the world’s second biggest silk producer, with about 8 million weavers living across local rural areas.
