Indian to PHL garment makers: Go organic and conquer US, Europe

Using organic material in garments and textile could boost Philippine exports, especially to the United States and Europe, an Indian manufacturing council official said Friday.   The “organic concept” is getting worldwide attention in the bigger markets, deputy director of the Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council of India Rajesh Satam said in a statement.   “With these value-added and environmental-friendly garments, maybe you will get more of acceptance for your country's products and you will get even more offerings," Satam said.   The Indian director noted that the potential is there for Philippines to cut a bigger stake in the US and European markets, where 55 to 60 percent of imports are organic garments and textile. — AL/VS, GMA News
