More than 5,000 buyers from 111 countries visited the recently concluded IHGF Delhi fair, to source home, lifestyle, fashion and textiles products. The 45th edition of the biannual fair was an international platform to boost exports of small and medium entrepreneurs of the handicraft sector. With time, Indian export trade has widened its scope and reach.

"Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) has been doing tremendous efforts for increasing exports of handicrafts from the country firstly by organising this kind of handicrafts fair twice a year. Secondly,  it is helping by setting  up infrastructures at different craft clusters of the country to provide the product and design development facilities, use of technology to produce products in large quantities and also providing marketing linkages to the artisans and craftspersons," Ajay Tamta, minister of state for textile.

"The five days knowledge seminars saw large turnout of exhibiting companies as these included  different and important subjects like cultural differences between the East and West and how they impact business; symposium on positioning of J&K handicrafts in domestic and overseas markets; goods and service tax; intellectual property rights; Customs Trade Partnership Agreement Terrorism; verification of certified forest products & trends and forecast – spring summer 2019," Rakesh Kumar, ED – EPCH, organiser of the fair, said.
