Textile sector adopts creative energy saving strategies
Mar '09
Globalization has created deep structural changes in the textile industry of Mauritius, enabling it to reposition itself at the global forefront. Textile industry in Mauritius contributes to 10% of its GDP and 40% of its export earnings. Currently, the industry is at crossroads.

The textile sector has moved gracefully from mass production of low cost basics to higher value added fashion segment, where the mass is less. It is also believed that the country is in a better position to compete and offer incremental rises in labor productivity.

The ultimate aim of the Mauritian textile industry is to minimize cost, reduce environmental impact, and remain competitive.
