The Synthetic and Rayon Textile Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) and the High Commission of India in Colombo are jointly organizing the 4th `Indian Textile Show` in Colombo, at Hall 2 of the BMICH on 11 & 12 January, 2006.
The SRTEPC has already held three similar trade shows in Sri Lanka.
The specialized exhibition will highlight India`s capabilities, and showcase products in the field of synthetic textiles, fibre, yarn and make-up. The Show will bring together Indian enterprises producing man-made fibres and. will strengthen the flourishing business relationship between the two countries.
Given the current scenario in the world apparel industry, where MFA quotas come to an end, the Government of India has offered special concessions for the export of 6 million pieces at zero duty under the India-Sri Lanka Free Trade Agreement provided the fabric used is sourced from India.
This will help the Sri Lankan apparel industry and give considerable boost to export of Indian man made fibres. Leading Indian textile manufacturers will be participating in the exhibition.
