Registered readymade garment exporters can now think of tapping the potential in non-traditional markets such as Columbia and Panama.
The Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) is organising a readymade garment buyer-seller meet between November 19 and 23 at Bogota city (Columbia) and the Panamas.
The council has decided to organise the meet on the recommendations of the Indian Embassy and based on the market potential for readymade garments in these non-traditional markets.
It (AEPC) is inviting garment exporters to enrol and avail the early bird discount as they have limited bookings and since this is the first time that the council is organising such a meet in these non-traditional markets.
“The exhibitors can take their latest collections specially designed for Latin American market and negotiate good orders with the buyers during the event,’’ an AEPC release said.
Reports reveal that the readymade garment imports from India to Columbia and Panama surged 76 per cent and 98 per cent, respectively in 2011 over 2010.
