This is the first amongst a series of 10 workshops which is planned by Textiles Committee at important textile centres of the country with the active support of different Export Promotion Councils under the Ministry of Textiles. The theme of the CBP is “Compliance and Strategy for Trade Facilitation”. 
The inauguration of the workshop will be solemnized by the Secretary (Textiles), Government of India, Smt Kiran Dhingra, IAS, while Shri S.P Oswal, Chairman of Textiles Committee and Chairman & Managing Director of Vardhman Textiles Limited will address the delegates as the Guest of Honour. The other dignitaries attending the workshop are Shri V Srinivas, IAS, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Textiles, Shri A.B Joshi, Textile Commissioner of India; and Smt Monika Garg, IAS Joint Secretary, Ministry of Textiles. In the technical sessions of the workshop, the experts will deliberate on issues related to NTBs including its effects on the exports of textiles and clothing sector. 
With the reduction of tariffs under the Doha Development Round (DDA) of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), most of the countries have been increasingly using NTBs as a major trade restrictive measure for denying market access to the export interest of other countries.
NTBs are trade barriers other than the tariff barriers and can take various forms. Broadly these can be categorized as Import Policy Barriers, Standards, Testing, Labeling and Certification requirements, Anti-dumping & Countervailing Measures, Export Subsidies and Domestic Support, Government procurement & Private Standards, etc. These measures are being imposed by the importing countries in the name of Quality, Social and Environment, Ethical Compliances Standards and many more. Further, implementation of Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation by the European Union is the latest addition to the basket of these barriers. Also, these country specific barriers are complemented by the importers/buyers with private standards, which, the importers project as business & market promotion tools.
