Intex South Asia is focused on transforming the South Asia region into a textiles and garments powerhouse. With Sri Lanka regaining GSP Plus, countries can make use of ‘regional cumulation’ to benefit from Rules of Origin (ROOs) when local sourcing for product input is not possible. Regional cumulation creates stronger regional co-operation between countries which are members of an EU recognized regional grouping like SAARC and countries which are GSP beneficiaries. Understanding this, Intex South Asia strengthens intra-regional trade helping manufacturers and buyers take advantage of opportunities developing in the South Asia region by combining their strengths and joining hands to create stronger business ties under one trading platform.
The 3rd edition of the Intex South Asia exhibition was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, H.E. Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe in the presence of the Hon’ble Minister of Industry & Commerce, Mr. Rishad Baithudeen and Hon’ble State Minister for Development Strategies & International Trade, Mr. Sujeewa Senasinghe. The grand opening ceremony was well attended by several Diplomats, Heads of Trade Associations and Industry stalwarts from Sri Lanka, South Asia and beyond.
