“Indian Apparels have been taking huge strides within the GCC countries and African markets. Apparel imports in these 2 regions were valued at US$ 11460 M and US$ 4850 M respectively in 2022. Indian apparel exports to these regions were US$ 2426 M and US$ 913 M making India’s contribution a solid 21% and 19%. And, an added incentive to source Indian apparel is also the fact that imports from India are duty-free due to the benefits offered by CEPA.”
