International buyers and investors from over 60 countries are expected to attend the fair and those dealing in technical textiles can be urged to invest in Goa, said media reports quoting Irani, who recently visited Goa.

The minister also said that there are weavers in Goa as well as outside of the state who make Kunbi sarees and the government will help these weavers revive the art of making this type of sarees with te help of the art and culture ministry. (KD)
