Perfect Sourcing - - Cover Story -

I don’t feel that the Govt. poli­cies are fair and in­creas­ing im­port du­ties on the tex­tiles from China will not im­pact In­dia or its or­ders. As far the ap­parel ex­ports com­ing back to growth in the FY 2018-19, I don’t think that it will hap­pen be­cause of the Govt. poli­cies. The big­gest chal­lenge for the in­dus­try right now is that the im­ports have gone down not the ex­ports. There is man­u­fac­tur­ing of ap­parel but ev­ery­one is fo­cused on cre­at­ing a niche mar­ket so we are los­ing out on em­ploy­ment. Sourc­ing is not a prob­lem as we are com­pet­i­tive enough. As far as the new prod­uct cat­e­gories are con­cerned I don’t see any de­mand for new prod­ucts. New coun­tries that are open­ing doors for busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties are New Zealand, Aus­tralia and other Euro­pean coun­tries. Our com­pany is a buy­ing agent and we deal with clients in South Amer­ica. In In­dia we source some raw ma­te­ri­als from all over In­dia.
