India’s garment export in 2010-11 stood at $11.026 billion and then increased to $12.397 in 2012-13, however in 2012-13 it declined to $12.397. Regardless of this decline, the performance of India’s apparel export is good and is expected to achieve the target of $17 billion set for 2013 – 14, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Textile, Panabaaka Lakshmi stated.
Ms. Lakshmi explained that there was a regular review on the performance of clothing exports and that the Government was taking promising steps with the readymade garment industry towards expanding clothing exports.
