Govt to adopt three imperatives for growth of textile sector

The Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh addressed the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of Confederation of Indian Textile Industry.

Dr. Singh extended his best wishes to the textiles and the clothing industry and assured that the government will continue to be an active partner in their progress.

The Prime Minister emphasised that the textiles sector has a strategic role in our industrial economy and said that new growth areas like Technical Textiles will be actively promoted.

The Prime Minister further reiterated the government's intention to launch a Technology Mission on Technical Textiles to support growth in the area.

Following is the text of the Prime Minister's address on the occasion:
'I am very happy to be here in your amidst at the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Indian Cotton Mills' Federation. Textiles is not only one of our oldest industries, but also one of our most important ones.

I am there fore delighted that various organizations representing the entire range of this diverse industry are now functioning under the aegis of the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI).

Industry associations and chambers of commerce came into being in the days when Governments regulated, restricted and controlled business activity. Your agenda in those days was to lobby, to petition and sometimes to protest.

Those days are mostly gone. You function in a more open and liberal environment. I am sure this has altered the nature of your agenda.

Rather than petition or lobby Governments, I assume you spend more time strategizing for the future and equipping yourself to deal with the challenges of competition, globalisation and rapid technological change which can not be wished away.
