RIL and AEPC host webinar on sourcing polyester fabric

New Delhi

The Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) held a webinar on ‘Sourcing of Polyester Fabric’ in association with Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL). It was attended by around 50 key players in the manmade fibre (MMF) based garments sector. The AEPC Chairman Dr A Sakthivel said that, they felt that they have enough MMF fibre and yarn but not have the proper fabric. He thanked Reliance for coming forward to fill the gap.

Ritesh Sharma, Head, Brand & Retail, RIL, stated that, the company runs the Hub Excellence Program (HEP) to support the value chain. There are more than 55 high-quality, value chain players across spinning, weaving, knitting and processing and more partners are being added.

He also said that, the company has a presence across all textile hubs and end-applications and through this program, they will be able to take advantage of manufacturing and technical support, quality and supply assurance, access to innovative products, manufacturing support, and one-stop solution for all requirements.

The webinar was organized to promote import substitution of polyester fabric and to explore new sources. Reliance Industries partners shared their fabric supply chain to India and updated on new fabric sourcing at the webinar.

MMF dominates global textile fibre consumption with 72:28 ratio i.e. MMF 72 per cent and 28 per cent is natural fibre. The share of MMF garment in India’s total apparel export is US $1.6 billion, which is only 10 per cent of India’s apparel export.
