Met with Hon’ble Minister for Commerce and Industries Smt Nirmala Sitaraman along with Bommanahalli MLA Shri Satish Reddy and representatives from Bengaluru’s Garment Industry . We requested her to pursue the FTA (Free Trade Agreement) extension to the European Union (EU). Currently, Indian mills have an export duty of 9.6% for supplies to EU while competing countries like Bangladesh have zero-duty access. This will also help the Garment Manufacturers offer better wages & benefits to their employees.
