“India should focus on promoting apparel export on mission mode. There is no reason why India should lose out on export opportunity in this sector to neighbouring countries as our country has been a global hub for textile manufacturing since time immemorial. It is time we leverage our policy initiatives such as mega textile parks to aim for increased exports not only in yarn and fabrics, but also in apparel and clothing,” said Suman Bery, Vice Chairman, NITI AAYOG at an event to launch MVIRDC WTC Mumbai Research Study on ‘India’s Export Competitiveness’.
