India Clothing & Textile Trade Show to be held in March 2011
Nov '10
After the huge success of Buyer-Seller-Meets at South Africa in the last three consecutive years of 2008, 2009 & 2010, AEPC is once again organizing a Trade Show at Cape Town & Johannesburg in South Africa from 02 – 08 March 2011 with 70 booths at each venue.

Ministry of Textiles & Ministry of Commerce has approved funding under Market Access Initiative for the India Clothing & Textile Trade Show in South Africa.

Economy in South Africa:
South Africa is the economic powerhouse of Africa with a gross domestic product (GDP) four times that of its southern African neighbors and comprising around 25% of the GDP of Africa. The country leads the continent in industrial output (40% of total output) and mineral production (45%) and generates most of Africa's electricity (over 50%). Its major strengths include its physical and economic infrastructure, natural mineral and metal resources, a growing manufacturing sector, and strong growth potential in the tourism, higher value-added manufacturing and service industries.

The Textile / Clothing Industry:
South Africa has a robust clothing industry. Clothing sales in SA are dominated by a number of retail houses, each with three or four store brands and each brand represented by a chain of over 100 stores within SA alone. The top seven chains account for roughly 70% of domestic market share. Some of the brands are also expanding into the rest of Africa.

Exporters registered with AEPC and other textile EPC's can apply for participation in the India Clothing & Textile Trade Show. Members of AEPC can apply directly. Applicants from other EPC's can send their application with full participation fees, in the shape of Demand Draft payable in favour of Apparel Export Promotion Council (payable New Delhi/Gurgaon) to respective EPC's.
