Indian garment exports has clocked 18 per cent growth since January 2017 after having remained stagnant for past three years and we hope that similar trend may continue for remaining period this year. Last year apparel exports were to the tune of $17 bn and this year growth is expected to be between 17-20 per cent from April to March 2017- 2018.The growth in exports will be supported by its expectations of increase in the global apparel trade and partly due to benefits of depreciated rupee. Moreover, the country’s emerging position as a preferred supplier for valueadded garments has significantly improved.
