21 member companies of the Apparel Export Promotion Council, AEPC, will visit Chile shortly

Embassy of India is pleased to announce that a high level Trade Delegation consisting of 27 representatives from 21 member companies of the Apparel Export Promotion Council, AEPC, will visit Chile shortly.

The textiles industry in India enjoys a distinctive position due to the pivotal role it plays by way of contribution to industrial output, employment generation (second largest after agriculture) and export earnings of the country. The industry is rich and varied, embracing the hand-spun and hand-woven sector at one end and the capital intensive, sophisticated mill sector at the other. Its association with the ancient culture and tradition of the country lends it a unique advantage in comparison with textiles industry of other countries, thus giving it an uncommon edge to cater to a vast variety of products and market segments both domestically, as well as, globally.

This delegation of 21 companies will hold a Buyer Seller Meet at Prieto-Bulnes Hall, Hotel Crowne Plaza from 09.00 to 18.00 hrs. on 15th and 16th March, 2012. Interested companies and importers may wish to contact Ms. María Elena Cobo, Santiago Chamber of Commerce on phone NO. 3607109 or Email, or Ms. Viviana García, Embassy of India, on phone 2284141 or Email .

AEPC, in collaboration with the Embassy of India, Santiago Chamber of Commerce and the Indo Chilean Chamber of Commerce are organizing a Seminar on the Textile and Garment sector to be held on Thursday 14th March at Montt Hall, Hotel Crowne Plaza at 19.00 hrs. The Ambassador of India and a representative of AEPC will make their presentations during the Seminar. The event will be followed by a dinner to be held at the same hall.
