Experts of the industry are eyeing this country that has annual GDP rate 7.7% (World-Bank 2009), as the country with immense potential in textile and garment arena. “The Indian Textile Industry is at the threshold of Golden Era”- gushes Mr Sunil Khandelwal in a discourse on Indian textile industry dynamics, exclusively for News team at Fibre2fashion.com.
