Welcoming the decision, Synthetic & Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) chairman Ronak Rughani said exports of man-made fibre (MMF) textiles have been consecutively falling month-on-month, while imports have been on rise, especially from China. Therefore, RCEP was a big stress for the Indian MMF textile industry, he said.
The Confederation Of All India Traders (CAIT) secretary general Praveen Khandelwal urged the government to work diligently towards creating a more conducive environment for retail trade in India and also erase all anomalies and imbalances created by the law violating e-commerce companies.
Dairy major Amul’s managing director RS Sodhi termed the move ‘daring’ and ‘landmark’ that will protect the interest of 10 crore farmers engaged in production of milk and related products.
"AIKSCC sincerely hopes that this Government will not try any back-door method of sabotaging the interest of Indian farmers and farm-workers through trade deals," the farmer’s body said in a statement.
Terming the decision ‘a very encouraging step’, Nitin Kunkoleinker, president of the Manufacturers' Association for Information Technology (MAIT), said it reiterates the government's strong support to the growth of manufacturing, especially in the information technology and electronics sector.
