India International Silk Fair to kick-start from Tuesday
Union minister of textiles Smriti Irani will inaugurate the sixth edition of India International Silk Fair (IISF) beginning Tuesday in New Delhi. Over 108 exhibitors of silk and blended silk products manufactured in different parts of the country will display their produce during the three-day event, organised by the Indian Silk Export Promotion Council.

More than 218 buyers from various countries will participate in the fair. Artisans from Jammu & Kashmir and North East will showcase their unique products from their region which will be an added attraction for buyers. India is the 2nd largest producer of silk in the world. The silk industry is agriculture based and labour intensive and provides gainful employment to around 8 million artisans and weavers in rural areas.

The fair will give a platform to exporters to display their products and overseas buyers an opportunity to place orders and source their merchandise. The IISF 2018 is expected to generate  business of over $20 million for the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) engaged in producing silk and blended silk garments, fabrics, accessories and floor covering, Indian Silk Export Promotion Council said in a press release.

The Central Silk Board will put up a Theme Pavilion showcasing the future vision of Indian silk industry. (RR)
