Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) expects the new guidelines from the Government of India on 20 per cent compulsory purchase of KVIC products to give a big boost to the khadi sector and create at least 1 lakh additional jobs and in the coming years.
In the last two years, the KVIC has held exhibitions and participated in trade fairs in more than 60 countries. Recently, it participated at the Feria India International Trade Exhibition in Peru between March 11 and 15, 2020. KVIC is also exploring opportunities for tie-ups with retail partners and e-commerce portals, as well as ways to increase the exports of khadi and village industries products.
KVIC plans to set up its first international retail store in Bhutan very soon. The proposal has already been approved for implementation.
