Deshpande, at the inauguration of EXCON 2017, South Asia’s largest construction equipment exhibition held in Bangalore, India from December 12th to 16th.


“Indian machinery and equipment manufacturers should focus heavily on the international markets and emphasised that they should build-up close relationships with neighboring countries, by offering special incentives to support their national developments and grow together hand in hand,” said Heavy Industries and Public Sector Enterprises Union Minister Shri Anant G. Geete, who graced the occasion as Chief Guest.


Addressing the inauguration Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) President Shobana Kamineni said that   Indian construction equipment sector grew by 32 percent during 2016 to 2017 experiencing an unprecedented growth. She said the industry is expecting to reach US$5 billion by 2020 with an annual growth rate of eight percent in the coming years. She further said that India is undeniably on a growth trajectory, which rides on the back of infrastructure.


EXCON 2017 Chairman Vipin Sondhi, highlighting the theme of the exhibition explained that ‘Smart technology fueling the next generation infrastructure’ perfectly aligns with any national development objective while contributing significantly to the economic development.


National Institution for Transforming India (NITI Aayong (Government of India)) CEO Amitabh Kant and CII Director General Chandrajit Benerjee also spoke at the inauguration.
