The Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) will be organizing trade events in various countries to promote textiles and other items.
 
The project named ‘SGCCI International’ aims to get international recognition to SGCCI and promote textiles and other products globally.
 
“Normally, SGCCI organizes exhibitions in Surat, but now we are planning to organize exhibitions abroad,” Mr. Paresh Patel, SGCCI President, told fibre2fashion.
 
SGCCI has short-listed three destinations, viz. Johannesburg in South Africa, Dubai and Thailand to hold its exhibitions.
 
“We plan to organize trade fairs between September to November this year and the tentative dates have already been decided. The trade fairs will focus on all sectors, including textiles,” informs Mr. Patel.
 
For the textile sector, SGCCI is also planning to set up an international textile fabrics library at Surat. “We will be getting fabrics from all over the world to Surat. Last year, we had 27 delegations visiting Surat and we requested all the business people as well as High Commissioners and diplomats of various countries to promote this project,” Mr. Patel reveals.
 
“The international textiles fabrics library will help promote business as Surat is a hub for the man-made fibre (MMF) industry. SGCCI has a tie-up with Man Made Textiles Research Association (MANTRA), which will enable us to know the structure of the fabric,” he adds.
 
“SGCCI also has a tie-up with the association of dyeing and printing. It will enable us to use the process technology and use the designs. For example, in Africa the fabrics have very colorful prints. Our tie-up will enable us to develop a similar print and on the same type of fabric. So, the manufacturers can have all the samples ready when they make a business visit to Africa,” he opines.
