Care Ratings says, “India is likely to expect a 0.5 per cent hit on economic growth this fiscal if the COVID- 19 pandemic lasts longer” If China continues to battle with the coronavirus, Indian garment manufacturers will need to look at other alternatives, including local sourcing, which in turn may increase the cost of finished goods by three per cent to five per cent. Furthermore, finding vendors will take a toll on lead times, quality and cost in such a short time. India exports an average of 25 million kilograms of cotton yarn a month to China.
