CII mulls using Tiruchi manpower to boost textile sector
Feb '18
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is mulling over boosting the Tamil Nadu state economy by combining the strength of labour availability in Tiruchirappalli (Tiruchi) with the textile industry in Karur and Tirupur districts, which face manpower shortage. CII held discussions in this regard last week with top Tiruchi district officials.

CII discussed with Tiruchi district collector P Rajamani the establishment of infrastructure for finishing and packing of export-quality textile products being transported to Tuticorin port from the two districts via Tiruchi. The collector agreed to speak to textile industrialists in Karur and Tirupur on the issue, according to Indian media reports.

Also discussed were ways to utilise the land banks in sub-urban and rural pockets, including Tiruverumbur, Manapparai, Thuraiyur for setting up industries on cluster basis, harnessing water, improving air connectivity to domestic destinations, expanding cargo activities and focus on agro-processing.

CII’s Tiruchi zone will soon release the district development plan with specific details. (DS)
