The Indian government has formed a committed to look into the issues raised by the apparel industry, which is going through a challenging phase, minister of state for textiles Ajay Tamta has said. Tamta was speaking at the inauguration of the 60th edition of the three-day India International Garment Fair (IIGF) at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi today.

“Garment sector is one of the largest employment providers and is helping a large number of people to earn their livelihood… The textile package announced by the Prime Minister is benefitting the sector, immensely,” Tamta said.

"During the last IIGF, business worth $200 million was conducted and this time I would like to see more buyers participating in the fair,” he added. The current edition of IIGF is primarily covering the autumn/winter season of European Union, the US and other Western markets.

“This time the fair is happening at a time when the industry is facing lot of challenges both domestically and globally. These are challenging times for the industry with global headwinds blowing over us. The post GST transformation for the industry has been challenging, but I am sure the industry will show the resilience it has shown in the past, and emerge stronger,” said Apparel Exports Promotion Council (AEPC) chairman HKL Magu.

A total of 294 exporters from 11 states namely Gujarat, Haryana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal are participating at the 60th IIGF. These 294 participants will be showcasing womenswear, accessories, kidswear and menswear. International buyers from 95 countries like Brazil, Spain, Japan, Uruguay, UK, Hong Kong, US etc. have also registered to participate in the fair.  (RKS)
