New Delhi, Jan 29 (UNI) Delhi will host a three-day international Horticulture expo from January 31, it was announced today.
The main focus of the six-in-one international expo, billed to be South Asia's largest, is to bridge the gap between producers, retailers and exporters, Media Today chief coordinator S Jafar Naqvi said at a news conference here.
It will also promote contract and corporate farming of fruit and vegetables in the country for export and simultaneously boost demand in the domestic market, he added.
