Mumbai, Aug 29 - The second 'Made In Pakistan Expo Mumbai', scheduled to start Aug 31, was abruptly cancelled at the last minute by the organisers Friday.

In a terse statement, the organisers said: We would like to inform you that due to the ongoing tension situation at the Line of Control (LOC) and on the advice from our partners 'World Trade Centre', we have 'postponed' the 2nd edition of MIPEM 2014.

Around 300 Pakistani businessmen, mostly from the garment industry, were expected to take part in the expo's second edition scheduled before the start of the festival season of Ganeshotsav, Navratri and Diwali.

The expo with the theme Festival of Friendship, was scheduled at the World Trade Centre, Cuffe Parade, Aug 31-Sep 5, and then slated to move to New Delhi Sep 10.

The highlights of the six-day event included a fashion show, an art exhibition and a Pakistani Food Court for the Indian visitors at the expo.
