Over 100 fabric importers and garment manufacturers from across the world will be in Surat in mid-August for direct sourcing of fabrics manufactured in the country's largest man-made-fabric (MMF) industry in an exclusive Buyer-Seller Meet in the second edition of the Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council's (SRTEPC) Source India Programme.

“The objective of holding the mega export promotion programme in Surat is to showcase the city as the leading centre of production of synthetic fabrics in India and to highlight the Council's initiative of 'Focus Surat' to further develop this thriving textiles centre as a hub of production and exports of synthetic fabrics in India,” said V. Anil Kumar, Executive Director of SRTEPC said in a press release.

Surat has emerged as a leading centre of production of synthetic fabrics, especially polyester filament fabrics. The daily production of fabrics is pegged at 4 crore metres.

The event is primarily aimed towards aggressive selling of Indian man-made fibre textiles to leading apparel and textiles buyers in Asia, the Middle East and Gulf countries as well as Africa and South America, the SRTEPC said in a press release.

The Council will start an initiative to attract leading foreign buyers to the event. The buyers will be identified and selected by the Council with expert help and active guidance of the respective Indian

Missions in each country and with the assistance of the foreign textiles and clothing trade bodies and chambers.

Buyers from over 30 countries including the US, UK and the EU are being invited to make this event a success. Representatives of the leading international apparel brands and their buying houses of international repute based in India and abroad, and others connected with the import of textiles including the leading apparel manufacturers in India will also be present at the Buyer-Seller Meet to discuss and clinch business deals. Fashion shows will also be held to showcase ability of Indian fabrics/made-ups for the fashion needs of Asia, Middle East, Africa and South America.

“The Council plans to select more than 100 member-companies of different product groups including suiting, shirting, made-ups, home textiles, dress materials, saris, yarn and fibres on a first-come-first served basis for participation in the Buyer-Seller Meet,” Kumar said. (SH)
