    Background: A big trade drive is on in South East Asia - the market with nearly 200 million customers. Focal point of the drive is in the free port of Singapore where India has opened a Trade Fair which will last two weeks.

    The Fair spotlights India's industrial and commercial progress and includes the products of nearly 300 exhibitors. Earlier a similar trade fair was held in the Malayan Capital of Kuala Lumpur.
