The Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC ) along with the Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Promotion Council( SRTEPC) and The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) are participating in the Fair.

The seventeen-member delegation comprises the representatives of AEPC,TEXPROCIL, SRTEPC, Knitwear Technology Mission, and leading textiles manufacturers and exporters from Tirupur and Coimbatore textiles clusters.

With a view to diversify the Textiles & Clothing exports and reduce dependence on USA and EU 27, the Government is promoting Indian textiles exports to South East Asia especially Japan with “Look East” Policy. Japan is one of the biggest consumers of textiles and clothing, but India has very negligible market share of 1.12 % in Japanese import basket.

India has planned to utilize this exhibition as a ground to show case different textile products and with a view to increase the textiles exports to Japan.
