The second edition of CVF will be held on 18th May 2017 in the Commercial Vehicle hub of Pune, more commonly referred to as India’s “Motor City”.
In the year 2016, India overtook China as the fastest growing major economy, expanding by 7.9 percent and cemented its position as one of the sole bright spots. It was a roller coaster ride for the Indian Commercial Vehicle Industry.
