Bangladesh’s leading global electronics manufacturer Walton is going to host the country’s first-ever mega industrial fair titled ‘International Advanced Components and Technology (ATS) Expo-2023’.

The expo is scheduled for 10 to 12 August 2023 at Hall-1 of the International Convention City Bashundhara (ICCB) in the capital, reads a press release.

Walton authorities made the announcement at a press conference held at the ICCB on Wednesday (9 August 2023).

Walton at its own state-of-the-art manufacturing plants is producing more than 50,000 industrial materials, components and services.

Most of these are used as the main raw materials and components in various stages of almost all industrial sectors. Along with meeting its internal demands, Walton may contribute to the reduction of import dependence by supplying quality industrial materials, components and services to domestic industries.

He also said that the ATS Expo aims to discover the world of possibilities by showcasing Walton’s homemade impressive repertoire of machining, mold & die, industrial raw materials, components, testing lab and other industrial services to domestic and international industrialists and visitors. Walton has also targeted to save billion of dollars of foreign currencies along with the reduction of import dependence.

He noted that Walton is exporting “Made in Bangladesh” labelled products to over 40 countries including countries in Asia, Europe, America and Africa. Through ATS Expo, he hoped that Walton’s path to create a strong position in this trillion-dollar global market will be smoother.
