Dr. Sarath Amunugama noted there are huge opportunities especially considering the regaining of GSP plus status from the EU. Sri Lanka sourcing of textile material from India, and transforming it into apparel and garments for rest of the world, could lead to win-win situation for both the countries.

He noted that apart from traditional fabrics, there is a niche market for products such as banana and bamboo fibres, organic dyes; Sugandha Vastra (Ayurvedic Spice Dyed Garments) etc. and our effort should be to innovate and grow together.
