The global garment and apparel industry is now focusing its energies on South Asia. As garment manufacturing shifts from China to South Asia, the potential for intra-regional trade is growing exponentially.

Realising there is a need for an international textile sourcing show in the South Asian region, Intex South Asia was created with the sole purpose of converging the South Asian industry by bringing together suppliers and buyers from across South Asia on one single networking platform. Intex South Asia is the first and only ‘International Yarn, Apparel Fabric & Accessories Trade Fair’ in South Asia promoting intra-regional trade.

Sri Lanka is the location of choice for the show because its politically neutral status ensures a conducive business environment for entrepreneurs from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh to meet and do business together. In the near future these traits could see Sri Lanka transform into the central business district for South Asia.

Created with a global objective, Intex South Asia is attracting international suppliers to the show as they are increasing their focus on the South Asian market. Their interests lie in the fact that South Asia manufactures 80% of the world’s brands and is considered the next garmenting hub of the world. It is also recognised as one of the best manufacturing, sourcing and distribution destinations for garments, textiles, accessories and finish. India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka & Pakistan together exported garments worth US$ 49 billion in 2014-15 and are expected to reach US$ 84 billion by 2020.

South Asia is also the fastest growing region in the world – its economy expanding by 6% in 2015 & 6.4% in 2016 – and has the largest youth population in the world. Giving an insight, Ms. Arti Bhagat, Director, Worldex India says, “A purchase of just one extra garment by South Asia’s 487 million fashion conscious youth would instantly lead to consumption of 974 million garments a year. Imagine the potential.”

South Asia is therefore on a seamless and relentless process of setting up a unique platform to accomplish global growth through superior quality, incomparable turnaround time and adoption of state-of-the-art technology.

Intex South Asia is the only international sourcing textile show in the region connecting global exhibitors from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, China, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia and more.

Intex South Asia is co-organised by Sri Lanka Export Development Board (EDB), in association with Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF); Sri Lanka Apparel Exporters Association (SLAEA); Sri Lanka Apparel Sourcing Association (SLASA); Sri Lanka Apparel Brands Association (SLABA); Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PRGMEA); Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF); Tirupur Exporters’ Association (TEA), Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI); The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) and the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SGCCI).
