Thulasidharan said that the Minister is scheduled to meet the members of SIMA at “Legend Hall”, The Residency, Coimbatore to have one-to-one interaction with stakeholders of textiles and clothing industry. The visit is in a series of interaction which Thiru Maran has conceived to get inputs from the various interests of textiles industry to achieve the short, medium and long-term targets which the Minister has set for transformation of textiles and clothing industry.

Thiru. Thulasidharan said that Dr.B.K.Krishnaraj Vanavarayar, Past Chairman, SIMA will felicitate the Hon'ble Minister of Textiles. Thiru. Pongalur N.Palanisamy, Hon'ble Minister for Rural Industries, Government of Tamil Nadu will preside over the function and Tmt. Rita Menon, I.A.S., Secretary (Textiles), Government of India will be the Guest of Honour.
