By SAT News Desk

MELBOURNE, 9 October: India’s foremost trade promotion organization for the export of handwoven products from India will attend the International Sourcing Expo Australia here (12-14 November 2019) for the eighth consecutive year, furthering solid industry links and cooperation between the Australian and Indian governments in relation to textiles and fashion.

As the 8th largest importer of handwoven textile products from India, Australia is an attractive market for HEPC’s members and the Indian handwoven sector with its wide range of exportable products and has the potential to further improve its market presence.

“The product profile of the exhibitors under the aegis of HEPC has evolved from the initial phase of participation offering just an exclusive home textile range of products to the current participants offering the whole gamut of all textile products including an entire range of home textiles such as coir products, clothing, accessories, and garments. Initially, we were exhibiting with 10 participants and this has doubled to 20 exhibitors,” Dr. S.B Deepak Kumar, IAS, Executive Director, HEPC said.

The trade-only event will showcase exhibitors from China, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Fiji, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Peru, Taiwan, Turkey, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, and the USA.
