Speaking at the inauguration Verma said, from next week apparel and garment exporters will be reimbursed for the state levies paid by them, with the Textiles Ministry securing Rs 500 crores from the Finance Ministry in this regard. In June last year, the government had approved a Rs 6,000 crores special package for textiles and apparel sector to create one crore new jobs in three years, attracting investments of $11 billion and generating $30 billion in exports. She said "Many of the exporters have already given their claims to the Customs department. Very soon these reimbursements will start, in fact from next week, you will start getting your money." Verma hoped We hope garment manufacturers will use this package to augment capacity to set up new units so that more investment comes and more jobs are generated and India emerges as a key player in the international market. "China currently is ceding space, it is a huge opportunity and I implore upon all our exporters to take advantage of this opportunity," Verma said.

Speaking on the occasion, Ashok G Rajani, Chairman, AEPC said India’s RMG export during April-December 2016-17 declined 0.2 per cent compared to the same period last financial year. Market sentiment were affected due to delays in roll out of special package announced for the apparel sector in June 2016 and stagnation in the Europe and US markets.
