The Government of India, through the textiles committee, has decided to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Japan Textile Products Quality and Technology Centre (QTEC) to jointly establish and encourage quality compliance activities. In this context, 'Industry Capacity Building Programme' are being organised at nine major textile centres in India.

The textile and clothing industry of India is aiming to increase its exports to Japan, complying with quality requirements of the Japanese market. Thus, it was decided to extend helping hands to the Indian textile trade and industry, for better understanding of quality culture in Japan, particularly concerning textiles and apparels.

The MoU is expected to usher in a new beginning in the international trade of textile and clothing from India to Japan as Indian industry is marching ahead. Trade and Industry appreciated the initiative taken by the Government of India and the textile committee which will bring in sizeable difference in the international trade, said Ajit B Chavan, secretary, textiles committee.

Chavan added that a major reason behind sub-optimal level of exports to Japan from India is lack of awareness about the Japanese textile quality requirements in Indian textile industry.

Subrata Gupta, joint secretary, ministry of textiles, said that by changing the mind-set, India can compete with Japanese quality requirements and hence enhance our quantum of textiles exports.

Vijay Mathur, additional secretary general, AEPC, in his special address, presented a case study of M/s Neetee Clothing Pvt Ltd, Gurgaon, outlining how an Indian exporter met both the quality and process requirements of Japanese market.

Toshiki Tasaka, director, overseas coordination department of QTEC; and Kei Funaki, ASEAN and South Asia regional manager, overseas coordination department, QTEC deliberated in depth on the subjects – difference of quality requirements between Western buyers; quality and compliance in Japan and JIS Overview; and the banned substance in Japanese market. Japanese delegates also discussed Japanese market requirements in terms of quality, makeup, benchmarking tools, Japanese industrial standards and various other compliances.

The capacity building programmes are being organised as part of an earlier MoU that was signed between the textiles committee of India and Japan's QTEC back in November 2016. (KD)
