New Delhi, Jan 13 (KNN) The Federation of Indian Micro and Small & Medium Enterprises (FISME), the apex body for MSME Associations in the country, is taking a 40 member delegation to Taiwan for the Taipei International Machine Tool Show (TIMTOS).

TIMTOS, being organized by Taiwan External Trade Development Council & Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry, is one of the largest exhibitions in Taiwan with close to 5000 booths.

The 26th Taipei International Machine Tool Show will be held from March 7-12, 2017. As many as 21 countries are participating at the event.

The Delegation would be visiting Taiwan from March 6-10, 2017. MSME entrepreneurs from sectors such as Machine Tools, Engineering Products, and Component Manufacturers are a part of the delegation.

FISME is leading the delegation to Taiwan, world's Fifth-Largest Exporter of Machine Tools, to help them source latest technologies and machines to enhance their business activities.

The industry body has previously taken three more delegations to Taiwan for attending – MTDUO, Taipei Plas and TIMTOS 2015.
