Hon’ble Minister of State for Textiles, Government of India, Shri Santosh Kumar Gangwar, inaugurated the 53rd India International Garment Fair, 2014 in presence of Smt. Zohra Chatterji, Secretary Textiles, Smt. Monika S Garg, (JS Exports), Shri Virender Uppal, Chairman AEPC, Shri Sudhir Sekhri, Chairman (EP), Shri Puneet Kumar, Secretary General AEPC, and esteemed buyers hailing from across the world at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

Shri Gangwar during the inauguration underlined the fact that, “53rd India International Garment Fair is India’s largest garment show in South Asia, covering Apparel and Fashion Accessories; encompassing a vast exhibition area of around 19533 square meters. The objective is to showcase latest garment and fashion accessories’ trends developed and created in India. The show is organized by AEPC in association with AEMA, GEA and CMAI as partner associations and GEAR as the co-organisers.”

“India has the significant advantage of a young population offering huge potential for a demographic dividend. This apparel sector being the highest employment provider in the manufacturing sector, especially for women and the other weaker section of society, has a much bigger role and responsibility,” Minister added.

Shri Virender Uppal, Chairman AEPC during the inauguration stated that, “The 53rd IIGF has attracted 416 buyers, which are divided almost 50:50 between the traditional and non- traditional market. This is an indication that the buyers from the non-traditional markets have started showing faith and see India to be a safe and compliant destination for sourcing garments. Exploring and engaging with the non-traditional market is the need of the hour, because most of them are emerging economies and are willing to source their requirements from India.”

Buyers from across the globe including Brazil, UK, USA, Turkey, South Africa, Russia, Poland, Japan, UAE, Australia, Hong Kong, UK, Spain, Australia, etc. are visiting in the fair. The big buyers includes One Jeanswear Group from USA, Grupo Hotelshops, Mexico, Alpelo Conf. E.com Ltd from Brazil, OSP Group (Red Cat) from USA, Cape Union Mart from South Africa, PJSC Melon Fashion Group from Russia, The Original Factory Shop from UK, Cortefiel from Spain, Lulu International from UAE, etc. 416 numbers of buyers from 59 counties have confirmed their visit to the fair.

This event also has exhibitors from across the length and breadth of India, including Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Mumbai, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Bangalore, Orissa and Punjab.
