Talk­ing to Ap­parel On­line, Ra­jiv De­wan shared his pri­or­i­ties say­ing, “We have to in­crease ap­parel ex­port from Jaipur and the en­tire Ra­jasthan. We will make sure that VASTRA fair takes place in the fu­ture, as it could not hap­pen this time. We will in­vite buy­ing houses to Jaipur and ar­range their fac­tory vis­its.” He fur­ther added that the new team will also work to solve the long pend­ing is­sue of get­ting land for ap­parel train­ing cen­tre.

GEAR, with more than 270 mem­bers, is the body of Ra­jasthanbased ap­parel ex­porters. Jaipur is one of the favourite choices of over­seas buy­ers es­pe­cially for women’s dresses and tra­di­tional arts like block print. How­ever, with the con­tin­u­ous chal­lenges at the global and na­tional level, most of the ap­parel ex­porters of Jaipur are not grow­ing as ex­pected.
