AEPC to take Indian apparel exporters to international fairs to boost trade
Apparel Export Promotion Council members are scheduled to participate in a large number of international trade shows this year including in Australia and the U.S., as the traders’ body works to boost apparel exports.
Indian apparel exporters are set to showcase their products in trade shows in Japan, the U.S., the UK, France, Australia, and Canada, among others, the AEPC announced on February 23.
Member apparel exporters are confident that they will be able to increase international trade significantly in 2020, the AEPC’s chairman A Sakthivel told the Press Trust of India.
“While the government has prepared the ground for growth of man-made fibre production in the country with its removal of anti-dumping duty on PTA [purified terephthalic acid], the council has planned to participate in mega exhibitions across the world to showcase Indian apparel,” Sakthivel told the Press Trust of India.
Upcoming trade shows the AEPC will send members to include ‘Pure London’ in the UK; ‘Magic Fair’ in Las Vegas; ‘Who’s Next’ in Paris; the ‘Australia International Sourcing Fair’ in Melbourne; and the ‘Apparel Textile Sourcing’ in Canada. The Union Government continues to promote the textile and garment industry as a major growth opportunity as part of its ‘Make in India’ campaign, which aims to increase domestic production and exports and decrease imports.
The AEPC has 12 offices across India and around 8,000 members. The organisation recently celebrated it 42nd anniversary.
