May '12
The Chief Minister of Gujarat - Mr Narendra Modi, has dynamic plans to add value to the raw cotton produced in the state. Incidentally, Gujarat is the biggest cotton producing state in India.

Mr Narendra Modi said his government is in the process of putting together a textile policy which will boost the cotton textile value chain in Gujarat.

He said the state was formulating a policy based on '5 Fs' - farm, fibre, fabric, fashion and foreign.

“This policy will ensure that most of the cotton produced in the state is processed within the state itself. We will strive to ensure Gujarat gains leadership position across the whole textile value-chain”, he added.

The aim of the policy is turn Gujarat in to a manufacturing hub for exporting ready-made garments across the globe, he informed.
