A new report by the World Bank estimates that apparel manufacturing has the potential to create over 1.2 million job opportunities.
The report titled Stitches to Riches - Apparel Employment, Trade and Economic Development estimates the potential gains in exports and jobs, and identifies policies that can unleash South Asia’s export and job potential compared with those of their closest competitors in the Southeast Asia region (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia). Women are expected to have more employment opportunities.
The report also suggests some policy measures to increase textile exports in India such as increasing product diversity, improving productivity and market diversity and shortening lead times.
