Addressing the pre-inaugural session Amit Gugnani, Sr. VP, Technopak said, “Our textile industry should take advantage of the liberal schemes implemented by the government and should grow as per the need of the future. Most of the developments towards this aim depend on technical advancements. Secondly, there is a need of harmony in the entire textile value chain. It must be done by making various efforts. We should understand the need and views of others in the chain.

He was having firm belief that presently it is a hard time for the textile industry in India, at the same time; there is a big opportunity before us. And we must be ready to exploit that. Technical textile has come with a huge potential of growth and opportunity. The future market of technical textile in the country seems to be huge. “Production of textile is reducing in China due to various reasons. We can take the advantage of that besides other favorable factors”, he added.
