Ram Singh, a Punjab Cadre IPS officer, has been appointed as the new secretary general of Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), the official body of apparel exporters in India that provides invaluable assistance to Indian exporters as well as importers/international buyers who choose India as their preferred sourcing destination for garments.

Singh is presently posted as director, ministry of textiles, Government of India, and has been given additional charge, as the secretary general of AEPC.

He is a decorated 1994 batch officer and is a graduate with “Institute Silver Medal” for 1st rank from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi. He has worked in myriad other departments like Commissioner of Police in Jalandhar and Amritsar; IGP/Border Zone, Amritsar; and DIG/Border Range, Amritsar; and Senior Superintendent of Police  in various districts in Punjab.

His achievements include Police Medal for Meritorious Service in year 2011, two UN Medals for exceptional contributions to United Nations during his posting in UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), DGP Commendation Disc for outstanding service in year 2011 and also graded for “Outstanding-Exceptional Performance”, the highest possible grade in UN Annual Confidential Report during his posting with UNMIK.

In recent years, AEPC has worked tirelessly in integrating the entire industry – starting at the grassroot level of training the workforce and supplying a steady stream of manpower to the industry; identifying the best countries to source machinery and other infrastructure and brokering several path breaking deals for its members and finally helping exporters to showcase their best at home fairs as well as be highly visible at international fairs the world over.
