To boost wool exports and generate new job opportunities, textiles minister Smriti Irani has sought views and suggestions from the Wool and Woollen Export Promotion Council (WWEPC).

The minister sought suggestions when representatives of WWEPC met her and apprised her about the problems and various steps that need to be taken for further development of the wool industry in India.

A detailed presentation on wool sector's export performance and other issues was made before the minister by WWEPC vice chairman Rajneesh Ghai.

“The minister has assured full support from the government for solving the issues of the industry to boost exports. The minister also sought suggestions from the stakeholders for development of this sector so that more employment opportunities could be generated,” WWEPC said in a statement.

The council, which has more than 1,000 members, is responsible to promote exports of wool and wool blended products like shawls. It maintains close liaison with the International Wool Secretariat and Wools of New Zealand and helps the Textile Inspection committee of India to ensure that Indian woollen products are made as per international standards.

It works with the organisers of leading international trade fairs and exhibitions, in order to project the quality and variety of Indian woollen products abroad. It also assists foreign buyers in their visits to India and chalks out their tour programmes, arrangements, etc. (RKS)
