The India Knit Fairs organized in the KNITWEAR CAPITAL OF INDIA, TIRUPUR has maintained the stream of good number of Buyers/Importers from all over the world including Buying Agents/Houses representing important Buyers and Chain Stores abroad. We have conducted 28 such fairs in Tirupur with the enthusiastic participation of Exporting Community.

Most of the global players are eyeing on India's potential with great interest as one of the key suppliers of Textiles and Clothing in the Post Quota Scenario.With improved technology, we have overcome the limitations like shrinkage and torque in knitted fabrics/garments and this has opened more opportunities.

The biggest bonus of knits is of being able to create and design our own fabric. One can get creative with both colors and the selection of yarns for the very basic knits. Knits have become so versatile that they are not just restricted to apparels or just accessories any more.Not many of us know that at the domestic front knits have entered the world of home furnishings, is capturing the area of lingerie, jewelry, soft toys, footwear etc. Due to its ingenuity of its very basic structural identity knits have conquered the technical and the industrial front too. Be it Medical textiles, Geo textiles, Industrial textiles. This Knitwear segment of the garment industry has experienced many changes in the recent times.

We would like to emphasize that we have a secured future and Tirupur will bounce back with vigor to show an upward growth in forthcoming years. There is always a niche market available globally and we have to tap it well and one amongst them is the production of garments made out of Organic Cotton.

KNITWEAR TECHNOLOGY MISSION (KTM) AT TIRUPUR
AEPC is in the process of setting up of the KNITWEAR TECHNOLOGY MISSION in Tirupur. The objective of the Mission is to help the exporting community to go in for wider range of products in different kinds of fabrics to a larger market.With the advent of the new fabric base, we could cater to a larger market. The National Fiber Policy being one of the initiatives formulated by the Ministry of Textiles will help the Knitwear Technology Mission in a big way to study the present and future demand scenario in Textiles, both nationally and globally, understand the interest of the various stakeholders, work towards rationalization of duty structures which would give major boost to the India Textile sector and especially to our Knitwear Sector with diversified fabric base to bring round the year business.. We thank Shri Rakesh Vaid, Chairman, AEPC for his kind gesture in choosing Tirupur for Setting up this Mission.

LOOK EAST POLICY FOR TEXTILE EXPORTERS
The Textile Ministry plans to come out with packages to help exporters in the sector to look more towards East in an attempt to help them diversify beyond the traditional Western market. Wider market options will help the exporters to be in good stead even while encountering market crisis in specific regions and thereby remains competitive in the global market.
