Intexpo will be held in Ethiopia on March 6 and 7, 2017. Indian artisans will exhibit handmade textile products including yarn, dress material fabric, suiting, shirting, made-ups and accessories. The event provides an opportunity for importers, buyers and agents in Ethiopia to source their requirements of different Indian textile products. The event also presents an opportunity for building long term and mutually beneficial relationships between Indian exporters and Ethiopian importers.
The first ever traces of Indian handcrafted textiles appeared in the form of cotton saris draped around statuettes, dating back to 3000 BC. Handmade textile products represent around 10 per cent of the Indian textile and garment industry products. These provide a great export opportunity to India since the infrastructure and expertise for manufacturing handmade and blended textiles are presently not available in Ethiopia.
The show is being organized by the Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council, which plays a crucial role in helping overseas buyers to firm up enduring and profitable business relationships with Indian exporters of synthetic and rayon textile products.
The council will continue to support and guide buyers and importers in Ethiopia to strengthen trade relations between stakeholders in both countries.
