GGMA to build apparel production park in Gujarat
Jul '10
In order to establish an apparel production park, the Gujarat state government has agreed to allot a land in Kathwada to the Gujarat Garment Manufacturers Association (GGMA).

During the inaugural function of the 17th Garment Fair organised by GGMA, Industries Minister, Saurabh Patel said that, they had located a 20 hectare plot of land at Kathwada, which was owned by GIDC and they were willing to give it to GGMA for constructing the apparel production park.

While giving a speech at the inaugural function, Patel urged the apparel producers to think out of the box keeping in mind their strengths and weaknesses. He also said that, the apparel industry had to concentrate more on right way of marketing and they should come out with new designs to further increase the market.

Earlier, Gujarat state government had identified 5.9 million square feet of land at Rakhial for the apparel park, but due to a court case, the land could not be allotted.

Taking in to account, the rate at which, the apparel industry is increasing in Gujarat, the government's plans to allot land at Kathwada for the apparel park, is obviously well accepted, informed GGMA President, Vijay Purohit. He further adds that, land, which was identified at Rakhial and more sites in other areas are also preferred for setting up more apparel parks.

As per Purohit, these apparel parks are mainly supposed to cater to the local markets. However, details about the exact amount that would be invested in these parks are yet not known.
