New Delhi, Jul 30 (UNI) Wool and Woollens Export Promotion Council (WWEPC) has expressed concern over 6.19 per cent decline in export of wool and wool blended products from Rs 1,919.30 crore to Rs 1,800.62 crore during the last financial year 2007-08.

WWEPC is an apex organisation under the Ministry of Textiles and engaged in export promotion of wool and wool blended products like knitwear, shawls, blankets and rumals from India.

To reverse the declining trend, Mr Ashok Jaidka, Chairman of WWEPC, stated that a warehouse will be set up in Moscow, where the Council members can store their goods for ready supplies to their customers at a short notice.

''The proposal of the Council has already been accepted by the Ministry of Textiles. It is hoped that very soon the Council will be able to open the Warehouse,'' he added.

The Council has finalised an ambitious export promotion programme for the current financial year (2008-09), under which the Council will send Trade Delegations to Moscow, Almaty, Tashkent, Australia&New Zealand.

The WWEPC will also be participating in Trends Apparel Show, Alberta, Canada, India Garment Fair, Osaka, Japan, Moda Accessories Exhibition, Birmingham, UK and various other leading Exhibitions across the world.

Mr Jaidka expressed the hope that the members will get substantial orders by participating in these promotional activities.
