Sharjah Airport International Free Zone (SAIF Zone) successfully participated in Pack Plus 2016, India's premier trade fair for packaging, processing and supply chain industries, which took place in New Delhi last week (from 27-30 July).

"SAIF Zone's participation provided an opportunity to connect and communicate with top-class companies in the field which participated in the fair and it also allowed us to learn more about the latest innovative solutions in the packaging sector. We also took this chance to highlight the major services and facilities provided to our investors  through the various amenities we provide, our infrastructural capabilities and the zone's unrivalled strategic location in the heart of Sharjah",  said Saud Salim Al Mazrouei, Director of SAIF Zone and Hamriyah Free Zone Authority, who led the delegation to India.
