Peru estimates US$14.4mn business from Fenim Brazil

Peruvian businessmen, who attended Fenim apparel trade show held in Brazil's Porto Alegre last month, are expecting US$ 14.4 million business over the next 12 months through contacts developed at the fair, the Commission for the Promotion of Peru Export and Tourism (Promperu), has said.

The four-day fair saw participation of around 600 exhibitors and 1,800 brands this year. It received an average of 8,400 visitors per day, an increase of 20 percent over the previous year's number.

Algotex Trading, Cotton Project, Cotton Textile Fashion, Design and Fine Apparel, Factory Textile, Frank & Ricky, Gobac, Inca Designs and Textile Art Latino were some of the Peruvian firms that participated in the fair. In 2011, these companies exported apparels worth US$ 63.98 million.

The aim of Peruvian firms behind their participation in the Brazilian fair was to promote the country's apparel exports, Luis Torres, Director of Export Promotion at Promperu, said.

Buyers from Parana, Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and Sao Paulo in Brazil as well as those from Argentina, France and Uruguay showed interest in Peruvian products at the fair, he revealed.

Peruvian apparels are noted for the quality of their raw materials and fibres, and woven garments were an attraction at this year's Fenim, he added.

Last year, Peru exported textile and apparel items worth US$ 1.986 billion to 119 countries.

Polo shirts, T-shirts, tank tops, kidswear and cotton sweaters were the major export items. Cotton trousers, innerwear and sleepwear for men and women were also among the apparel products exported during the year.
