India's garment export is poised to register a positive growth in 2017-18, said Apparel Exports Promotion Council (AEPC). The council has an ambitious target for export and job creation for the next three years and initiatives by the government along with good quality products aided by innovative design prowess will drive the change for the industry.

“The garment export industry is poised to grow in 2017. The growth will also help in meeting the target of Rs 6,000 crore and create 1 crore jobs set up by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a special package for the apparel export industry,” said Ashok Rajani, chairman, AEPC at the awards ceremony for excellence in global exports for apparel sector organised by the association in Delhi.

“The Prime Minister has given a wonderful package to the textile industry in June 2016, and I assure you that we will not only achieve the $30 billion mark in next three years for apparel exports, but also have the potential of exceeding the expectation. We have an immense pool of talent in our country and this is an industry that can harness this resource maximum utilisation,” added Rajani.

Rajani said that the share of textiles and apparel in total exports from the country increased from 13 per cent in 2013-14 to 15 per cent in 2015-16. The association has expanded capacity with seven new Common Effluent Treatment Plants with Zero Liquid Discharge technology in last two years covering 3000 SME units. Also, eight apparel and garment making centres were set up in all north-eastern states and Sikkim for promoting garment manufacturing in the region.

“Apparel Export Industry is highly employment intensive, more than 5.3 lakh persons trained in last two years under Integrated Skill Development Scheme out of which 81 per cent have been placed including 79 per cent of the trained women, providing big help to the employment seekers in country,” he added.

AEPC organised over 40 events in India and overseas including seminars, workshops and trade fairs and BSM. Apparel Training & Design Centre (ATDC) has trained over 250 thousand workmen, mainly women and empowered them to not only improve their lives but the lives of those around them. (KD)
