As one of the partner organisations of the Karnataka government for promoting and organising the Global Investors Meet 2012 (GIM 2012) to be held on June 6 to 8, 2012, in the outskirts of the state capital, the Bangalore office of FISME has turned into a beehive of activity.

FISME representatives led by senior Central Executive Committee member and past President Mr Mohan Suresh and members of the Bangalore secretariat are actively participating in organising road shows and meetings to promote the event.

So far, road shows have been conducted in Singapore, South Africa, Japan and Taiwan. All these countries along with Germany and the USA have consented to participate in various fields of the global investors meet. 

FISME representatives have also participated in a series of meetings held at Udyog Mitra involving the Karnataka Industries Minister, Chief Secretary, Government of Karnataka, Advisor to the Chief Minister, the Commissioner of MSMEs, associate, knowledge and event partners as well as industry Federations and Associations who are supportive organizations for the GIM Expo 2012.
