Indian minister urges apparel industry for dumping data

Indian textiles minister Smriti Irani recently urged the apparel industry to provide the commerce ministry with market intelligence and port-wise details of dumping to fight anti-dumping in the apparel segment and prepare a clear case in line with World Trade Organisation (WTO) norms. Dumping of fabrics from China has always been a challenge, she said.

At an event organised by the Chennai Citizens Forum, Irani said handlooms and handicrafts are another focus area for the government but the lack of quality in the sector has been a major challenge, according to Indian media reports.
