The Textiles and Clothing (T&C) industry bears a significant role in international trade. The sector benefitted immensely in recent times and globalization has offered great opportunities to the entire value chain from fibre to fashion. The growth in trade and the resultant manufacturing activity in the producing countries generated large number of net business processes with tangible manufacturing activities and continuous new business formations with intangible activities like designing, branding, retailing and trading. Most of these economic activities are highly labour intensive and thus it created direct and indirect employment opportunities. This sector bolsters more positive distributional effect with intensified manufacturing activities in relatively low income countries. The sector is very important for developing economies, accounting for a double digit (more than 10 per cent) of value addition in domestic economy and almost 30 per cent of their total merchandise exports.
