He said that Indian handicrafts and gift products are known for their designs and quality and participation in the above fair will open new vistas for Indian exporters.

FIEO President Shri G K Gupta said that India's major export to Hong Kong is precious and semi-precious stones. India also exports raw hides and skins, cotton, iron& steel, electrical machinery and equipments to Hong Kong in a big way.
