SURAT: Federation of Indian Art Silk Weaving Industry (FIASWI) has urged the central government to promote buyer-seller meets between the garment manufacturers and the weavers in order to encourage production of required man-made fabrics.

Official sources said the garment manufacturers in the country had approached the government recently to represent the issue of giving duty concession in the import of fabrics.

Instead of duty concession, the government could engage the apex bodies in the textile sector for arranging buyer-seller meets between Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) and weavers to encourage indigenous fabric production required for garment manufacturing.

Industry experts said the garment manufacturers, who require fabrics having special properties like flame retardant, water proof and smart garments etc. that fall under technical textile category, must be encouraged by such buyer-seller meets to manufacture such fabrics. lf import is allowed of the items as proposed, it will also harm the technical textile mission of the ministry of textiles, they said.

Chairman, FIASWI, told TOI, "India is the biggest manufacturer of man-made fabrics. But the weavers are facing problems due to increase in the yarn prices, which is the basic raw material. However, China is manufacturing cheap fabrics due to availability of cheap yarn. This is the reason the fabrics in China is cheaper compared to ours."

Jariwala added, "Only the buyer-seller meets could bridge the wide gap between the demand and supply. Both weavers and the garment manufacturers should be encouraged to participate in the meets."
