Mr Dayanidhi Maran, Textiles Minister
Recently, Mr Dayanidhi Maran, the Union Textiles Minister spoke exclusively with fibre2fashion and discussed about the various initiatives announced in the Union Budget 2010-11 and thanked the Union Railway Minister in particular, for announcing that the railways will explore the possibility of using jute geo-textiles, wherever the soil formation of the railway tract is unsuitable and weak.

He also shared with fibre2fashion, his experiences of leading textile delegations to various trade fairs and meetings to countries like Japan, US and a few European Union countries. The main focus according to him was to reduce dependency on traditional markets like the US and explore new markets of the Far East, Africa, Latin America, BRIC countries and Scandinavian nations.

He was very positive about the fact that, Indian textile products are really competitive but, he pointed out that the drive and inertia on the part of the exporters, seemed to miss out on the essentials like, offering the right product mix, quality, and marketing and promotion and noted that the Government and the Ministry of Textiles has extended a long hand for capitalizing on all such efforts and will continue to do so.
