Indian products, a big hit in Trinidad

December 23, 2004 11:39 IST
On the Christmas eve, Indian-made jewellery, clothing and other products are a huge hit with the shoppers here as hundreds of them throng an ongoing Indian trade fair.

Christmas in Trinidad and Tobago is big business when the country gets on a shopping spree. The presence of Indian products has added an additional flavour to Christmas shopping.

The Indian trade fair jointly promoted by Linkers India, New Delhi and the International Business Promotion, Trinidad and Tobago, has captured the national imagination of shoppers with massive purchases of specially-made Indian items.

About 70 booths reflecting Indian creativity offer items more than what meets the eye. Indian goods continue to fascinate shoppers around the world for its competitive price, high quality workmanship, both of which can stand the wrought of products made in other countries, G K Arora of Linkers India said.

"This trade fair is another demonstration of the strong relationships that exist between Trinidad and Tobago, and India. Trade, economic, cultural and political relationships are significant indicators for the continuation of this relationship," he said.
