The second edition of the International Trade Fair on Textiles and Apparel, titled “Vastra-2013”, will be organised at Jaipur Exhibition and Convention Centre in Sitapura industrial area here in October this year. The Union Ministry of Textiles is extending support for organising the four-day event.

The Rajasthan State Industrial Development and Investment Corporation (RIICO) signed a memorandum of understanding with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) for organising the fair here on Tuesday. RIICO Managing Director Siddarth Mahajan and FICCI Rajasthan State Council Director Gyan Prakash signed the MoU in the presence of RIICO Chairman Rakesh Srivastava.

During the first edition of “Vastra” held in November last year, 178 exhibitors, 361 foreign buyers from 61 countries and 36 Indian buying houses attended the event. While Rajasthan hosted the event, Gujarat, Haryana and Kerala participated as partner States.

Mr. Mahajan said “Vastra” had carved a place for itself in the calendar of international exhibitions on textiles and apparel. Last year’s event witnessed over 4,500 buyer-seller meets and generated business worth $61.90 million. The Garment Exporters’ Association of Rajasthan has joined “Vastra-2013” as a supporting body.
