New Delhi: PM Modi inaugurated the India Toy Fair 2021on Saturday via video conferencing. A press release from the Prime Minister’s Office read, “Toys play a significant part in the development of a child’s mind and also help improve psychomotor and cognitive skills in children. In his Mann Ki Baat address in August 2020, the Prime Minister had said that toys not only augment activity but also give flight to aspirations.”
Highlighting the importance of toys in the holistic development of a child, the Prime Minister has earlier also emphasized boosting toy manufacturing in India. The India Toy Fair 2021 is being organized in line with this vision of the Prime Minister.
The fair will be held from February 27 to March 2, 2021. It aims to bring together all stakeholders including buyers, sellers, students, teachers, designers, etc. on a virtual platform to create sustainable linkages and encourage dialogue for the overall development of the industry.
