Despite the current economic atmosphere, a four-day handicraft exposition, 'The Indian Handicrafts and Gifts Fair (IHGF) Autumn 2009'generated business of Rs. 7.5 billion.

The fair had witnessed numbers of international buyers and received many orders for the handicraft products, said EPCH chairman Mr. Raj Kumar Malhotra during concluding session of the event.

He cited this demand growth as the spin in handicraft sector because last year's business of the exposition stood at around Rs. 5.25 billion.

The expositions, which are organized by EPCH, are held twice a year in the months of February and October and known as IHGF Spring and IHGF Autumn.
