Lead Council-Apparel Export Promotion Council

Incorporated in1978, AEPC is the official body of apparel exporters in India that provides invaluable assistance to Indian exporters as well as importers/ international buyers who choose India as their preferred sourcing destination for garments.

A quick look at how the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) has been the moving force behind lot of achievements:-

  • From one office in 1978, it has over 40 offices in just a span of 30 years
  • From just being a quota monitoring entity, AEPC is today a powerful body for the promotion and facilitation of garment manufacturing and their exports
  • For Indian exporters, AEPC is quite literally a one-stop shop for information, technical guidance to workforce and market intelligence. Members have access to updated trade statistics, potential markets, information on international fairs and assistance in participating at these fairs. It also plays a large role in identifying new markets and leading trade delegations to various countries

In recent years, AEPC has worked tirelessly in integrating the entire industry - starting at the grass root level of training the workforce and supplying a steady stream of manpower to the industry; identifying the best countries to source machinery and other infrastructure and brokering several path breaking deals for its members and finally helping exporters to showcase their best at home fairs as well as be highly visible at international fairs the world over.

Twice a year, AEPC showcases the best of India’s garment export capabilities through the prestigious India International Garment Fair, playing host to over 350 exhibitors displaying the exotic, the haute, the prêt, the contemporary and much more.

With AEPC's expertise and all the advantages that India has, it makes for a truly win-win situation – Indian exporters grow stronger each year in their achievements, skills and proficiency, while international buyers get superior solutions for their garment imports.
