AEPC members promote Indian apparel at Australia's International Sourcing Expo
A group of Apparel Export Promotion Council members showcased their Indian made products at the International Sourcing Expo Australia. The AEPC is focusing on increasing apparel exports to Australia, New Zealand, and the Oceanic region.
“Australia has traditionally been the topmost trading partner for Indian garments with our exports occupying a share of about 4% of total Australian garment imports,” said the AEPC’s chairman Naren Goenka, the Press Trust of India reported. “We foresee a stronger presence in the Australian market appreciating the recently concluded Indo-Australia trade agreement.”
The International Sourcing Expo Australia ran from November 15 to 17 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Melbourne. Indian businesses showcased a wide range of both traditional cotton and man-made fibre garments at the trade show in line with global fashion trends, the AEPC announced on Facebook.
“We are supported by the world’s second largest spinning and weaving capacity, giving the industry an opportunity for a 95% domestic value addition,” said Goenka. “India offers to the world a complete value chain solution from farm to fashion, giving us a competitive edge by shortened lead times to reach our buyers.”
