Con: Mumbai would be less attractive than e.g. Delhi or Bangalore to foreig

Traffic in Mumbai is very difficult
Question: what about the presence of local EDA or circuit industry that would
find it attractive to support the event and send participants
For lack of information
, the proposal will need to be presented in more
possible approval at the October meeting in Santa
Post meeting information: Virendra Singh sent slides the day after the meeting.
