"Bauma 2016, is significant for the construction industry for both the manufacturers as well as the contractors. It is a great opportunity for equipment manufacturers to explore tie-ups and co-operations with overseas manufacturers for the equipment required for various infrastructure projects envisaged in the country, specifically the equipment required for rural road development and state highway upgradation projects where there is a huge shortage of manufacturers offering high performance equipment. ICEMA will be making a presentation to highlight its activities during the India day symposium organised by VDMA. The presentation will also focus on opportunities available in India for both equipment and component manufacturers, with a view to invite them in setting up a shop in India in line with the government’s 'Make in India' policy. ICEMA has also lined up series of meetings with various international associations like CECE, CEMA and International Associations Council (IAC) with a view to exchange and extend cooperation on technical matters, standards governing CEMM equipment, skill development, adoption of international best practices etc. This Bauma will be an eventful mission for ICEMA."
