Meghalaya will soon have its own apparel and garment centre. Chief Minister Mukul Sangma recently laid the foundation stone of an apparel and garment centre to be set up under the North East Region Textiles Promotion Scheme, according to media reports.

The state government has been working in tandem with the central government to create multiple opportunities for the youth workforce with number of interventions which include various skill and entrepreneurship development programmes, the chief minister said.

"The focus of the state government has been to create job spaces for the youth within the State rather than the usual placement for jobs in other parts of the country," he said.

Textiles minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar, who was present on the occasion, said that there was a need to jointly work towards growth and development stating that handloom and handicraft is essential everywhere in the world.

Referring to Narendra Modi who after taking over charge as the Prime Minister of India had expressed his concern for the northeast, he stated the importance of working towards the growth and development of the region and also mentioned that Bangladesh which is close to the state is also faring well in the textile industry in the world.
