FIEO- Unleashing India’s export potential
India is a land of vibrant culture, exquisite cuisine, and fascinating traditions. It is also home to a thriving export industry that has been steadily growing over the years. At the forefront of this industry is the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO), an apex body that has been championing India's exports since 1965.
FIEO is a non-profit entity that represents Indian entrepreneurs' spirit of enterprise in the global market. It provides guidance, support, and direction to thousands of Indian exporters, helping them navigate the complex world of international trade. They are the bridge that connects Indian exporters to the rest of the world, helping them showcase their products and services to a global audience.
The federation represents Indian exporters in international forums, trade fairs, and exhibitions ensuring that their voices are heard on the global stage. They work closely with the Government of India to develop policies and initiatives that promote Indian exports. In one such event that they organized in the USA, Tradyl had the opportunity of participating in the FIEO Buyer-Seller Meet in Los Angeles.
The exhibit happened at Fashion Tech Centre in Downtown Los Angeles, with manufacturers and suppliers coming in from different manufacturing clusters of India. Each of us was given a stall to showcase the exquisite collection to the buyers from California, who were looking at sourcing quality Indian manufactured products. It was a great opportunity for Tradyl to interact with them to understand the sourcing needs of the US market.
We got the opportunity to interact with esteemed individuals including Padma Shri Dr. A Sakthivel (President of FIEO, & Chairman of AEPC), the Consul General of India in San Francisco Dr. TV Nagendra Prasad and Managing Director, Triburg USA, Mr. Vikash Chawala. We also had discussions with Fashion & Home industry leaders such as Mr. Gaurav Bhargava (President at LPH Apparel Inc) and Mr. Sahil Chaudry (Director RAGA & RAGA Man), fellow exporters Ms. Dhanya Sugathan (CEO at Artizenery), Mr. Arvind Kumar (Director at Arbhu Enterprises), Ms. Supriya Rocha (Founder at Karmadori), Mr. Krishnamoorthy Natarajan (Managing Partner at SV Knits) and many more. A special mention and thank you to Mr. Rohit Tejpal (Deputy General MRD in Federation of Indian Exports Organisation) for organising this event and bringing everyone together on this international platform.
The insights that we received from these prominent members will definitely help Tradyl to look at the export market with a new perspective. With the FIEO Buyer-Seller Meet, we look forward to strengthening these ties and servicing the demands of the US retail market with Made in India products. We express our sincere gratitude to FIEO for presenting us with this wonderful opportunity!
