The 46th India International Knit Fair was recently organised in Tamil Nadu’s Tiruppur by the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) and India Knit Fair Association (IKFA) in the backdrop of the ongoing US-China trade war, according to IKFA chairman A Sakthivel. Exhibitors from Tamil Nadu, Delhi region, Maharashtra, Telangana and Punjab participated in the fair.

The three-day fair, which concluded on May 17, had 36 stalls put up by exporters, according to Indian media reports.

Exports of knitwear products from Tiruppur is likely to cross ₹30,000 crore during this fiscal from ₹26,300 crore in 2018-19, Shaktivel had said early this month.

Exports during April 2019 crossed ₹4,400 crore, which is a very encouraging sign, he had said.

Moreover, India has the strength in raw materials, like cotton and man-made fibres, he pointed out. (DS)
