Mahesh Purohit, Home Depot , Gurgaon
Home Depot is an home improvement retailer which is US based. Our sourcing is done from South Asia and Middle East countries. We also source for the US, Canada and Mexico. Yes I think India can benefit a lot from the US and China trade war in terms of export orders. In terms of sourcing, first of all the cost will become competitive and if there is healthy competition, there will be some benefit, although there is doubt in buyers’ mind too. Yes the apparel exports sector will come to its growth path in FY 2018-19. The biggest challenge for the industry is that though the demand is pretty good, suppliers and supplies are not making products as per the quality standards required.
