Ram Singh, a Punjab Cadre IPS officer, has been appointed as the new secretary general of Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), the official body of apparel exporters in India that provides invaluable assistance to Indian exporters as well as importers/international buyers who choose India as their preferred sourcing destination for garments.

In recent years, AEPC has worked tirelessly in integrating the entire industry – starting at the grassroot level of training the workforce and supplying a steady stream of manpower to the industry; identifying the best countries to source machinery and other infrastructure and brokering several path breaking deals for its members and finally helping exporters to showcase their best at home fairs as well as be highly visible at international fairs the world over.
