ISEPC to organize Silk Paradise
May '09
India is the largest consumer of raw silk and the second largest producer, contributing 18% to the world silk production. Historically silk has been one of India's most important industries in the textile sector, with global trade being recorded as far back as with the ancient Greeks.

The Indian silk industry is estimated to employ about 6 million people. This large pool of skilled and relatively low cost labour, availability of indigenous raw material, high communication skills, product development capabilities and flexible manufacturing systems make it a cost effective supplier of a variety of silk products.

The Indian Silk Exporters Promotion Council (ISEPC) is setting out to showcase the product development and manufacturing capability of over 100 suppliers from around India to global buyers from Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa in July 2009, through the first 3-day Silk Paradise exposition in New Delhi.

The Council aims to provide buyers with a cost-effective and time-efficient buying trip by combining producers of clothing, home furnishing, accessories and fabrics under one roof.

The Silk Paradise exposition will be held on 15-17 July, 2009 alongside the India International Garment Fair (IIGF) at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, India.
