The India International Garment Fair (IIGF), the 6oth edition of which was inaugurated Wednesday in the national capital, is an opportunity for Indian garment exporters and foreign buyers to forge business relationship, said Minister of State for Textiles Ajay Tamta.

Tamta said that IIGF is a big platform which brings together overseas garment buyers and garment exporters, with almost half of Indian states participating in the fair.

The garment sector is one of the largest providers of employment, the minister added.

Speaking at the event, APEC chairman H. K.
