For that sector to grow, the government will continue to initiate discussion under the auspices of SDPI to finalize as to what kind of particular incentives in the budget can be provided to the apparel manufacturers.

Finance Ministry had incorporated most of the policy recommendations of SDPI's last year Sustainable Development Conference at the macro level economic decisions. While formulating trade-related policies, we particularly took into account SDPI's proposals like border entry level facilities, removal of tariff and non-tariff barriers, and building infrastructures. We look forward to the upcoming policy recommendations.
