J N Singh, chief secretary, Gujarat government, said that the 12th office of AEPC will help promote apparel exports from the state and thus give a boost to Gujarat's garment manufacturing industry. This will help complete the textile value chain of farm to fashion, in Gujarat.

Chairman of AEPC, Ashok Rajani said that in the past three months, apparel exports had declined by 12% due to GST and several other reasons. Currently, apparel exports from India are worth $17 billion and if the government takes necessary measures, this is likely to grow by 20%.

The industry is suffering as there are several taxes which have not been subsumed under GST, including petrol-transportation, electricity and cotton seeds which increase the tax burden by 11.5 percent.
