Haryana wants to make Gurgaon an apparel hub
Feb '16
The Haryana Government has ambitions plans about its textile industry wants to turn Gurgaon into an apparel hub like Surat and Varanasi.

The government made its intentions clear ahead of the 'Happening Haryana: Global Investors Summit” in Gurgaon at a discussion hosted by the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC). Haryana Government officials and apparel industry experts took part in the discussion on the scope of investment in the clothing industry.

“We have made a mark in apparel export all over the world. We are the seventh largest apparel exporter in globe and the industry is growing at the rate of 3.50 per cent. Haryana is the upcoming destination for investment in apparel industry and is turning into an apparel hub. I would like Gurgaon to become an apparel brand like Surat and Banaras. The Government of Haryana will support the budding entrepreneurs and will provide favorable environment to them. We will gear up and address the critical issues of the industry to motivate entrepreneurship and provide investment in Apparel Industry,” said P K Das, Additional Chief Secretary of the state, according to an official press release.

The apparel sector is one of the focus areas for investment in Haryana at the global investors' summit.

Critical issues such as skilled manpower supply, ease of doing business and need for constant interaction between government and industry for easier compliance of regulations for the apparel industry were discussed.

Participants also highlighted the need to address the lack of sufficient industrial training institutes. With grueling emphasis on Skill India these days, there is a need to open more ITI's training students about the nuances of apparel sector, so that this industry sees more professional entering it to entry-level jobs. Skill-based training makes entrants more employable in a particular sector, the release said.

“We are happy that Happening Haryana has apparel sector as an area of investment in Haryana. I appreciate the initiative taken by the Government of Haryana in taking up the industry issues. The apparel sector has its share of problems; investment would increase by leaps and bounds once the government takes steps towards eradication of these problems. We have collaborated with state government in various areas and we are constantly in touch with them to help Apparel Industry grow further,” said Ashok G Rajani, Chairman, AEPC. (SH)
