West Bengal to showcase Metiabruz as RMG hub at BGBS 2018

Jan '18
To double exports of readymade garments (RMG) in the next three years, West Bengal will showcase the Metiabruz zone in south-western Kolkata as a hub for such garments at the fourth edition of the Bengal Global Business Summit (BGBS) to be held on January 16-17. The Rs 10000-crore RMG industry in the state involves around two crore people.

The initiative is seen as a strategic effort to boost the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector. This unorganized sector contributed nearly 28-35 per cent to the state’s export figures, but is now facing a slump following demonetisation and implementation of goods and services tax (GST), according to a report in top Indian newspaper.

Bengal's garments export turnover grew to Rs 53,649 crore in 2016-17 against Rs 47,857 crore in 2015-16.

The condition of small- and medium-scale traders and manufacturers is pathetic, said Samsuddin Mondal, president of West Bengal Garments Manufacturing Association. (DS)
