The 5th international conference on Apparel and Home Textiles ICAHT-09 themed - 'Value Thinking' held under the aegis of Okhla Garment and Textiles Cluster (OGTC) concluded successfully on Saturday, at the India Habitat Centre with the intent of managing better - people, processes and technology to aid the progress of Indian garment and textile industries.

Rounding off the sessions briefly, Mr Tony Uppal, President expressed his satisfaction over the successful conduct of the two-day deliberations where industry experts, technical services providers and leading cluster entities deliberated over proactive technical sessions.

Some of the industry experts who presented their topics during the sessions were Dr Rajesh Bheda of Rajesh Bheda Consulting, Mr Richard Clayton-Alsop from GSD Corporate, Malaysia, Mr Peter Pinder-Browne of Pinder-Browne Consulting and Mr Roger Thomas from Methods Workshop, South Africa.

There was a judicious mix of industry and academia from the audience and the interactive sessions drew very positive and though provoking responses from among the panelists.

The prestigious Padma Shri Award was recently bestowed upon Mr Saktivel by the President of India, Mrs Pratibha Devisingh Patil, recently. This is a unique honour for a personality from the textile industry and he deserved every bit for his selfless and benevolent services not only for the progress of the industry but also to the society in general.
