ACMA, CII & SIAM to jointly host 6th Auto Expo 2002

Ranked amongst the premier auto shows in this part of the world, the 6th Auto Expo 2002, Asia’s largest automotive show will be held from 15 – 22 January, 2002 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The eight day fair will showcase over 900 Companies including 23 automobile manufacturers.

Launched in 1986 and repositioned as a biennial event since 1996, Auto Expo is organised by the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA), Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) and has since emerged as Asia’s largest Automotive Show.

Addressing the first Press Conference on Auto Expo 2002, Mr. Subodh Bhargava, Chairman – Trade Fairs, CII, said that the 6th Auto Expo 2002 will witness international participation from 19 countries – China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, UK and USA. Global automobile majors include BMW, Fiat, Ford, Honda Motorcycles & Scooters, Hyundai Motor, Mercedes, Skoda, Toyota and Yamaha Motors – to name a few.

Indian auto majors like Ashok Leyland, Bajaj Tempo, Eicher, Hero Honda, Hero Puch, Hero Majestic, Hindustan Motors, Kinetic Engineering, LML Limited, Scooters India, TELCO, TVS Motor Company, etc. are exhibiting at Auto Expo 2002 and will unveil their future plans.

Mr. R. Seshasayee, President, SIAM, said that the Indian automobile industry was facing a challenging phase with environmental imperatives, safety requirements, competitive pressures and customer preferences which is changing the way businesses had been done in the past. The Doha declaration puts further pressure on Automobile Industry, as in the case of other industries, to become more competitive in the shortest possible time.

SIAM, in its Pre-budget Memorandum, has urged the government to address the critical issues and remove the internal impediments. While it may be necessary to carry out external reforms, it is imperative that these are preceded by necessary internal reforms like a well designed VAT implementation programme, Mr. Seshasayee said.

In his address, Mr. D.K. Jain, Past President and Chairman of the Trade Fairs Committee of ACMA emphasised that the Indian component industry had established its own identity as an efficient and competitive supplier of high quality auto parts for the global vehicle manufacturers.

For the component industry, the Auto Expo is therefore a show of strength of their technical and commercial capabilities. Auto Expo 2002 is expected to act like a forum to assist in the establishment of an internationally competitive automotive supply chain in India by promoting direct linkages between the Tier 1 companies with the smaller and medium sized Tier 2/3 companies who manufacture single parts and components.
