AEPC to organise buyer-seller meet in Uruguay and Chile
Jan '16

The Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) will be organising a buyer-seller meet (BSM) in Montevideo, Uruguay on 18 and 19 March and in Santiago, Chile on 21 and 22 March this year with 25 exhibitors at each venue.

Uruguay's import of readymade garments from India increased from $9.5 million in 2013 to $13 million in 2014. Similarly Chile's imports of readymade garments also rose from $45.1 million in 2013 to $50.7 million in 2014. Looking at the growing volume of readymade garment exports from India to Uruguay and Chile, AEPC has organised the BSM.

At the BSM, one to one meetings are proposed to be organised at Chile for participating exhibitors. The exhibitors can take along their latest collections specially designed for Uruguay/Chile market and negotiate orders with the buyers during the event, an AEPC circular said.

AEPC has tied-up with the Santiago Chamber of Commerce in Chile for inviting garment buyers in the meet and at Uruguay a PR agency is entrusted to bring buyers to the venue.

The funding for the BSM has been approved by the ministry of textiles and ministry of commerce under its Market Access Initiative. (HO)
