Govt to set up distinct handloom production zones
Nov '10
Several actions have been taken up by the government for the expansion of the handloom sector like the setting up of distinct handloom production zones, said the Industry and Commerce Minister of Sri Lanka, Rishad Bathiyutheen.

While addressing the TexIndia 2010 Buyer-Seller Meet at Colombo, he added that handloom production zones are likely to be established in almost all the provinces of the country next year. In order to rehabilitate the internally displaced people, the government has taken several measures which will also enable the growth of the handloom industry in the Eastern as well as Northern provinces.

He further added that the project will be started with the support of the Economic Development Ministry. India is a major power in the handloom sector and is all set to extend the necessary support to Sri Lanka.

Chairman of the Powerloom Development and Export Promotion Council (PDEXCIL) – Chhajar, President of FCCISL – Kosala Wickramanayaka and other representatives from PDEXCIL also attended the meet.
