Intex South Asia Growing exponentially YoY
Intex South Asia is the biggest international apparel textile sourcing show for yarns, apparel, denims, clothing accessories and allied services in the South Asia region. It has created a platform under one roof, connecting the entire manufacturing and supply chain by bringing together the best manufacturers of apparel textile products and clothing accessories coupled with serious buyers from across South Asia and the rest of the world.
Intex South Asia is focused on transforming the South Asia region into a textiles and garments powerhouse. With Sri Lanka regaining GSP Plus, countries can make use of ‘regional cumulation’ to benefit from Rules of Origin (ROOs) when local sourcing for product input is not possible. Regional cumulation creates regional co-operation between countries which are members of an EU recognised regional grouping like SAARC and countries which are GSP beneficiaries.
Intex South Asia strengthens intra-regional trade helping manufacturers and buyers take advantage of opportunities developing in the South Asia region by combining their strengths and joining hands to create stronger business ties under one trading platform. In 2017, more than 200 exhibitors from 15 countries including India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, China, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey, Australia and USA exhibited top quality products for the 2018-19 SpringSummer collections.
