President’s Message: From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate everyone who attended this event and put their efforts, time and spent money to attend FAIITA Annual General Body Meeting. It is indeed a pleasure to understand that most of the associations members across India believe FAIITA as their own federation and they are inclined to work towards the betterment of the fraternity. As usual, FITAG has done a wonderful show, your presence has graced the occasion to its best.
OLS committee meetings with Brand Owners were fruitful as per the feedback received from the vendors and those who attended these meetings. We are sure that a new milestone would be achieved by signing the MoM with all the vendors leading to better hygiene in the market. The discussions in AGM will make a good impact as all member representatives took part in the interactions on every point of the agenda. The governing body meeting followed immediately after AGM which showed the keen willingness of the Governing Body Members to work for the benefit of FAIITA.
As I have been insisting, I once again remind you all to start investing half an hour a day from your busy routine for FAIITA, I am sure we all will see newer heights in coming future. I am also expecting all the twelve committees to be functional by the time we assemble for the next governing body meeting which is proposed to be held at Ranchi in the month of April. Once again, thank you so much for being a part of FAIITA gathering. I am surely looking forward to such large scale events for specific purposes in the coming future, said, Kaushik Pandya, President, FAIITA.
