As part of its initiative to promote the sale of Indian textiles in the world, the Union Ministry of Textiles has drawn up a comprehensive and integrated Annual Marketing Plan in association with 11 sector Export Promotion Councils (EPCs).

While synergizing various ongoing market initiatives, the Marketing Plan has adopted a specific approach for traditional, emerging and other important markets, Union Minister for Textiles Smriti Zubin Irani said in a written reply in Lok Sabha.

A standard plan for international pre-fair and post-fair activities has also been developed for implemented by Export Promotion Councils.

A key feature of the plan is creating a common umbrella brand for Indian Textiles which would be done by showcasing fibre to fashion products in the Indian pavilion, organizing road shows in tandem with the main event and organizing India Eve (B2B meetings) after business hours of event.

A senior official of the ministry would head the delegation to ensure successful implementation of the plan, the minister informed, adding that an international media agency would be engaged to ensure industry participation during road shows and India Eve. It would also be responsible for running proper media campaign before the event and also ensure wide media coverage.
