64th All India Textile Conference to be held in December
25
Aug '08
The Textile Association (India) acts as a useful link for industry, policy makers, academia and textile professionals. The Association organizes annual conference (popularly known as AITC) to strengthen the ties amongst them.

Till 1980, the AITCs were mainly focusing on industry views and research work. Since 1980, the AITCs are theme based. The themes of the past dozen conferences indicate how the industry has been responding to the forces of globalization, cautiously at first, and a little more confidently later.

Rajeev Gandhi Auditorium, Bhilwara (Rajasthan)

Indian textile industry has seen great swings post ATC. The industry seems to be some what uncertain after a rise in 2005. In global era, the growth of Indian Textile industry- internationally and at domestic level- has not been in line with that of other industry. It seems the industry is once again cautious and is seeking directions. Gripped by uncertainties, the industry is looking only at the policy makers for hints.

Policy, technology status, management acumen and skill, cost structure, desired contribution from the academia and finally the choice of Product-market mix -- what makes us not to perform? The conference would like to pose these issues to the Policy makers, Industry stalwarts, etc. At the same time, Home Textiles seem to be doing better in this uncertain period. This calls for an analysis and understanding of this sector which may throw meaningful lights for other sectors to perform.

Technical Textiles, in the recent past have received major attention from the policy makers. Although an important growth sector, the education and skill needs are much beyond the classical textile domain. Also a comprehensive market analysis about various product groups is still awaited.

A well defined and appropriately chosen segment of the industry would perhaps lead the desired growth of the Technical Textiles. The Conference would provide a platform to discuss and debate the desired path of growth for the Technical Textiles.

Garment sector, always seen as the Growth Engine for the Indian Textiles, is passing through a developing phase. Although, a lot of discussions and debates have taken place in the recent past, a huge nation like ours, for time to come, would have to be globally competitive(beyond much talked about Rupee-Dollar parity) with the Apparels Textiles for significant participation in the global trade.

Neither the Government nor the Industry can undermine the significance of this sector both from employment and the Export potential and hence a more productive debate would be essential. The Conference would like to bring in the leaders to address this very important issue.

It is to be admitted that as a Nation, the Academia and the Industry have not contributed significantly in the Innovation of Products/Processes, management, marketing and adopting the best practices, to position India favourably in the global changes. It is high time, we examine HR development and needs, and ask ourselves -- why are we so slow in Innovating? The Conference for the first time would like to assess the Knowledge Bank and its potential in the country and examine the changing needs.
