The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi today approved for signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Textiles Committee, India and Nissenken Quality Evaluation Centre, Japan, according to an official release. The MoU is for improving quality and testing of Indian textiles and clothing for the Japanese market.

“The MoU would enable Nissenken Quality Evaluation Centre, Japan in assigning Textiles Committee as their cooperative testing and inspection service providers in India for textiles and apparel products, including technical textiles and any other products mutually agreed upon at a later date for both domestic and overseas clients/buyers,” the release said.

In January this year, the Indian government had invited proposals from consulting firms to conduct a study on the Japanese textile-apparel industry to boost domestic exports and enhance mutual collaboration.
