U.S. TRADE AND INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN INDIA'S TEXTILE AND APPAREL INDUSTRY COULD GROW UNDER INDIA'S NATIONAL TEXTILE POLICY 2000

India's National Textile Policy 2000 is expected to provide opportunities for growth in U.S. trade and investment in India's textile and apparel industry, according to a new U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) staff research study.

The publication, India's Textile and Apparel Industry: Growth Potential and Trade and Investment Opportunities, examines India's textile and apparel industry in terms of the structural anomalies and other key factors that inhibit its growth and competitiveness, government programs designed to help improve its competitiveness, and product sectors that offer opportunities for increased U.S. trade and investment.
