Government of Gujarat will shortly announce a spinning textile policy, which will encourage investments in spinning sector in a bid to add value to cotton produced in Gujarat, Mr Saurabh Patel – Minister of State for Industry (Gujarat) told invitees at the inauguration of the Incubation Centre for Technical Textiles in Ahmedabad.

Mr Patel said, while inaugurating the Incubation Centre in the premises of the Ahmedabad Textile Industry's Research Association (ATIRA).

The Incubation Centre which has been set up at an investment of Rs. 188.2 million will help entrepreneurs to research and develop technical textile products and conduct techno-economic viability studies to avoid investing huge capital in product development and conducting trials.

He said, In order that entrepreneurs set up industries in Gujarat, we have created private industrial parks and alongside acquisition of land has also been made easy. Gujarat is also a power surplus state and water will also be made available in plenty, due to setting up of huge desalination plants”.

He further said, “Gujarat produces 35 percent of cotton in country of which 50 percent is exported and most of the rest too is sold in other states. So we have made, setting up spinning mills a priority. Alongside, technical textiles sector will also be given top primacy by the government”.

He informed, “We are also giving high credence to skill development programs in the state to ensure that industries which plan to set up shop in the state do not run short of workers.”
