The Indian firms are part of a delegation from the Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC), an apex body of manufacturers/exporter of man-made fibre textiles, in coordination with Federation of Indian Export Organization (FIEO) and the Indian Embassy from Egypt.
 
The participation of Indian companies in the Cairo Fashion and Tex is aimed at forging a win-win partnership between the Indian and Egyptian companies.
 
The exhibition will also host an 'India Pavilion' wherein companies will showcase a very wide range of products, including yarns and fabrics.
 
India's Ambassador to Egypt Sanjay Bhattacharyya, while in a statement said India and Egypt have a long tradition of exchanges in the textiles sector.
 
"India stands ready to work with Egypt towards attainment of its new textile policy goals in production as well as in trade and investments," he said.
 
"Indian textile machinery is not only very good in terms of quality but also because India and Egypt has similar large populations and large labour force. So this kind of machinery will be very good for the Egyptian market," he added.
 
"We will be showcasing different varieties of fabrics, made-up items which are ready to wear, yarn and fibre. So, it is an excellent opportunity for the Egyptian buyers and traders to visit this exhibition to see all the participant Indian companies under one roof as it will be also an opportunity for discussing business," Srijib Roy, director of SRTEPC, said.
 
The objective is to strengthen the trade between the two countries, particularly in the fast-growing area of Man-Made Fibre (MMF) textiles.
