PERFORMANCE REVIEW

The clothing Export scenario continued to be fiercely competitive. Textile and clothing exports slid 0.4% in the last financial year (2017-18) to $ 35 billion as apparel exports fell. While exports of cotton yarn, fabrics and made ups grew 4%, outbound apparel shipments registered a 4% decline, reducing from $ 17.3 billion to $ 16.7 billion. Garment exports from Vietnam and Bangladesh were increasing whereas Garment production in India has declined in the last 10 months. As pricing are too competitive, great effort is necessary to bag orders. Furthermore Duty Drawback element also reduced by about 70% during the period.

IMF said India’s growth is expected to rise from 6.7% in 2017-18 to 7.3% in 201819 and 7.5% in 2019-20, as the effects of demonetization and the introduction of the goods and services tax fade.
