Gujarat apparel makers eye bigger share in India's exports
Jul '13
Garment makers in western Indian state of Gujarat are eyeing a larger share in India’s exports volume and are in talks with the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) to find ways to enhance the volume of exports.
At present, Gujarat accounts for only about two percent of India’s total apparel exports, which is quite less, Gujarat Garment Manufacturers’ Association (GGMA) president Vijay Purohit said on the sidelines of the 21st GGMA National Garment Fair in Ahmedabad.
To enhance Gujarat’s share in India’s apparel exports to about 10 percent over the next 3-4 years, GGMA is in talks with the AEPC, said Mr. Purohit, Business Standard reported.
To boost exports, GGMA wants to make efforts to raise both quality as well as volume and for the purpose the association has been demanding space at subsidized rate to set up an apparel park.
The Gujarat government has already allotted a 57,000 sq m of land in Ahmedabad for setting up the apparel park, but the association is demanding that spaces in the apparel park be made available at subsidized rates.
Once the apparel park becomes operational, it would house at least 500 garment manufacturing units, and would help in improving quality and also boost exports, Mr. Purohit said.
The three-day National Garment Fair saw visitors from more than 22 states and also from some foreign countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia.
