While visiting the Stalls at the Meet the Hon’ble Minister appreciated the designs of garments of all categories. He encouraged the participants by saying that quality and designs of the garment manufactured by the local garment manufacturers are of international standard. He suggested the participants to make endeavour for exporting readymade garments to overseas markets.

West Bengal Garment Manufacturers and Dealers Association is the pioneer in the country in organising Garment Buyers and Sellers Meet. Started early in 1977, this Meet is 39th in its series. 45 Garment Units are participating at this Meet. Beside local manufacturers, participants from Delhi, Punjab, Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad have come forward and have participated in this Meet. Thus, it is an all-India Garment Buyers and Sellers Meet. This Meet is trendy and a fascinating collection of newly designed readymade garments.

2000 garment retailers visited the Meet and placed bulk orders at this Meet keeping demands during Festive Season in view.  Approximately Rs. 100 crores of business has been generated at the Meet.

Incidentally, West Bengal has the largest concentration of small readymade garment units in the country. The industry has not only cater to the requirements of Eastern and North Eastern States but also serves other regions. The industry in the State provides employment to lakhs of people.
