The Chamber Trade Fair 2012 was inaugurated by Mr V Neethi Mohan, Chairman of Vaigai Group of Industries. Mr Mohan has also announced Rs 50-lakh donation towards the Tamil Nadu Chamber Foundation, for setting up a permanent trade centre in the city.
During the inaugural function, Mr S Rethinavelu, senior president of the Tamil Nadu Commerce and Industry, has also announced that the temple city will soon get an international connectivity as Sri Lankan Airways is willing to connect Madurai Airport to Colombo.
