YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-03-03 10:00:00 – Africa

Indian Textile Exhibition (INTEXPO) Ethiopia, an exclusive exhibition for hand-made textile products of Indian artisan is organized by the Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC). The exhibition is part of Indian government Export Promotion Program for the year 2016-17.

This event is being organized with the support of the Embassy of India in Addis Ababa, Ministry of Commerce and Ministry of Textiles of India, local traders and Ethiopian Government wings such as the Ethiopian Investment Commission, Ethiopian Textile Industry Development Institute, Chamber of Commerce and Sectorial Associations, and Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce and Sectorial Associations.

Exhibitors are expected to display a wide range of hand-made textile products including yarn, dress material fabric, suiting, shirting, made-ups and accessories.

The event provides opportunity for importers, buyers and agents in Ethiopia to source their requirements in different product categories that represent the Indian textile craftsmanship.

The event also has scheduled B2B meeting in order to present a unique opportunity for building long term and mutually beneficial relationships between Indian exporters and Ethiopian importers.

The average share of hand-made textile products represent around 10 percent of the Indian textile and garment industry products.

According to the embassy, there is a substantial scope to increase Indian exports to Ethiopia since the infrastructure and expertise for manufacturing hand-made and blended textiles is presently not available in Ethiopia.

The Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) plays crucial role in helping overseas buyers to firm up enduring and profitable business relationship with Indian exporters of synthetic and rayon textile items, noted the embassy.

The Council will continue to support and guide the buyers and importers in Ethiopia in the coming years to strengthen the trade relations between the stakeholders in both countries, it said.

Among the expected list of attendees are Ethiopian Minister of Industry, Ahmed Abitew, Commissioner of Ethiopian Investment Commission, H.E. Mr. Fitsum Arega, and team of experts from the commission will make a presentation about the investment opportunities in Ethiopia particularly in relation to the textile and garment sector of the country.

INTEXPO Ethiopia will take place for two days on 6th and 7th March of 2017 at Lalibella Hall of Sheraton Addis, Ethiopia.
