French technology to boost Indian textile industry's competitiveness

Apr '10
The French textile machinery manufacturers realise the importance of the Indian textile industry. Hence they invited the Indian textile producers to a series the Indo-French seminar “French Technology to Boost the Indian Textile Industry's Competitiveness” which were held in Mumbai and Ludhiana on 20th and 23rd April 2010 respectively. Both the seminars were a huge success with a participation of more than 150 companies in Mumbai and close to 200 in Ludhiana.

The French machinery manufacturers recognise that the Indian textile industry has a double challenge:
- to cater to the fast growing domestic market for higher quality products
- to stand up to the competition in order to take advantage of globalization.
The objectives of the seminars were:
- to present how the French technology can enable the Indian textile producers to enhance
their position by providing sustainable competitive advantages in the following markets:
Recycling - Nonwovens - Technical textiles - Yarn preparation and yarn treatment - Modern weaving
- Knitting - Dyeing and Finishing - Air conditioning of textile plants.
- to regularly facilitate (the previous edition of these seminars took place two years ago) direct contacts between the Indian textile producers and the top management of the French machinery producers. Mrs Evelyne Cholet, the Secretary General of UCMTF, the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers' Association, has always played a major role in the organisation of these seminars in India. She realises the importance of direct contact with the customers. According to her: “Organisation of such seminars in India is very important at present especially when the Indian Government realises the importance of new investments in textile machinery to stimulate this strategic sector. The technical textiles sector for which France has an expertise is another sector which has great potential in India”.

Hence the main aim of these seminars was to promote Indo-French partnerships in order to address the challenges of globalization.

The French Trade Commission of the Embassy of France in India, Ubifrance (France's agency for the international development of French companies) and the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers' Association (UCMTF) were co-organizers of the seminars.

The seminars were held under the patronage of the office of the Textile Commissioner – Ministry of Textiles, Government of India and were supported by the CII-Western Region, TAI Mumbai Unit & PHC Unit, FAITMA, NITMA, FEKTAA, TEXPROCIL, TPA as well as Technopak Advisors.
