Despite a weak global market, the handmade carpet industry in India is growing at an annual rate of 17 per cent, textiles minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar has said.

Speaking at the inauguration of the India Carpet Expo in New Delhi, the minister expressed his happiness and satisfaction at the No. 1 position held by the Indian handmade carpet industry in the international market.

Stating that the industry is growing at 17 per cent per annum, he appreciated the efforts of Indian manufacturers and artisans. He assured that the Indian government will continue to support the carpet industry and its export efforts in every possible way.

The four-day exclusive trade fair for handmade carpets and other floor-coverings is organised by the Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC). Around 270 small, medium and large manufacturers and exporters of handmade carpets from different craft pockets of India are showcasing their products in this expo.

CEPC chairman Kuldeep R Wattal said that exports of handmade carpet has been showing an upward trend, possible due only to the full support of the ministry of textiles. He informed that 437 overseas carpet buyers from 57 countries have registered with the council to visit the fair.

More than 240 overseas carpet buyers and 150 buying representatives visited the fair on the first day. (RKS)
