With Vidarbha region all set to occupy an important place in the area of textiles, an Ethiopian delegation, including government officials and textile industry representatives, visited the Government Polytechnic Nagpur (GPN) in Nagpur. The visit was part of a study tour on cotton growing methods and development in cotton textiles in India.

"It was an industry-institute interaction meet on cotton growth and development in Vidarbha region. The delegation from Ethiopia included eight top officials from Ethiopian Industry Input Development Enterprise, Ethiopian Textile Industry Development Institute, Cotton Producers, Ginners and Exporters Association Ethiopia, Ministry of Agriculture and Natural resources and Ministry of Industry," Deepak Kulkarni, GPN's head of textiles manufacturing department, said, according to a leading daily report.

The purpose of the meet was to bring experts in the field of cotton growth and development on one platform. Vidarbha region, which comprises 11 districts in eastern Maharashtra, is the largest cotton producer in the state.

"Vidarbha region could be the next emerging zone for textile operations. We have a strong agriculture base. The region has attracted number of diverse industries ranging from food processing, textiles, power engineering, logistics etc. The cotton growth and development has seen a significant progress in last few years in the region," Kulkarni was quoted as saying.

According to Shrikant Gadge, a local textile consultant, Vidarbha contributes up to 30 per cent of cotton crop in India. "Maharashtra has sanctioned Rs 2000 crore recently for the region for farm-to-fashion drive project. The state has also attracted huge investment in the textile sector during last 4-5 years. Cotton related small and medium scale industries would be promoted in the region." (SV)
