Sri Lanka's apparel industry is improving its image as an ethical manufacturing destination in the global market. Apparel industry is the highest foreign exchange revenue generator of the country and showing a gradual and steady increase.

These aspects enable them to have an ever increasing demand for its apparels in the global market.

Industry experts positively assert that with apparel exports topping any other product in the Sri Lankan foreign exchange revenue graph, the industry shows favorable signs of growing.
