AEPC to organize buyer-seller meets in Latin America
Sep '12
In a bid to expand the international market for Indian garments to non-traditional regions, the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) is organizing a readymade garment Buyer-Seller Meet in the Columbian capital city of ‘Bogota’ as well as in the Republic of Panama from November 19-23.
AEPC’s decision to organize business meets and exhibitions in Latin American countries is based on the recommendations of the Indian Embassies and the future market expansion possibilities for Indian apparels in the untapped regions.
During their visit, Indian apparel manufacturers will display their latest collections, specifically designed for Latin American markets. They would also get an opportunity to have a one-to-one meeting with the buyers for negotiating good orders.
AEPC said it would assign separate spaces for all the participants to promote their businesses and additionally would fix meetings based on the product range of exhibitors and demand of the visiting buyers. 
Last year, India’s clothing exports to Columbia and Panama grew by 76 percent year-on-year and 98 percent year-on-year, respectively.
