The textiles department of the government of Maharashtra is working on the second textiles policy and is seeking suggestions for it, said Ujjwal Uke, principal secretary, textiles, Maharashtra. He also said that the industries and the government should have a broader vision to ensure textile sector's development and should work together for its growth.

Uke was addressing the workshop organised by The Textile Association India- Vidarbha (TAI) and Indian Textile Accessories and Machinery Manufactures Association (ITAMMA) in Nagpur. He was the chief guest at the event.

The textile industry can also try to connect with universities and other educational institutes to promote innovations and help the sector, according to the principal secretary.

A panel discussion was held on the topic 'Creating ecosystem for innovation and technology development' and things like consumer needs, machine availability and product costing were also discussed at the workshop.

Kishor Khaitan, president, ITAMMA and a panelist, said that India lacks an ecosystem for innovations and textile manufacturers should give innovators an opportunity. (KD)
