Ronak Rughani, chairman of Mumbai, said that the US-China trade war opened up an opportunity that would help the export of Indian man-made fiber textiles (MMF) to stagnate, increasing 5% to 7% of synthetic textiles and rayon in a year and a half. The Textile Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) said at the unveiling ceremony of the 4th "Source India 2019" held in Mumbai yesterday.

According to Indian media reports, Textile Minister Smriti Irani said that India should now be a reliable source of quality MMF textile products.
