Sub: Inviting participation in Texworld & Apparel Sourcing Fair, Paris
18th to 21st September 2017
The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council with the support of other Textile EPCs proposes to Organize National Level Participation in ‘TEXWORLD’ and ‘Apparel Sourcing’ concurrently held at Paris Le Bourget, France from 18th -21st September 2017.
Advantages of participation through the Council
In the year 2016, EU (28) imported US$ 121.64 billion worth of T & C from the world, of which, import from India was US$ 8.61 billion, accounting for 7.08% market share.
European Union (EU 28) as a combined market is the largest importer of Textiles & Clothing (T&C) from India, accounting for 26.3% of total export of T&C from India during 2016.
Considering the higher spending capacity in EU 28 countries, as a block, it is the single largest market for the Indian export of T&C products. However only 7.08 % of total import of T&C into EU was from India thereby offering scope for increasing market share by undertaking suitable marketing activities, such as participation in this established event to meet major importers in EU.
