The Textile Association of India (TAI) – Karnataka unit organised a two day International Textile Conference at Nimhans Convention Centre, Bangalore from January 22-23, 2016.

The conference, alongside which a trade show was also organised, was inaugurated by textile commissioner of the state, Dr. R Raju, who explained about the development activities of textile industries in Karnataka.

He said that the Karnataka state government was putting more emphasis on development of industry both in Bangalore as well as outside Bangalore areas.

According to him, the state government offered opportunities for the growth of industry like; good roads, availability of water, electricity and infrastructure even in rural areas.

He also said that the government has contributed 2,500 acres of land through industrial development, while electrical infrastructure of up to 2500 MW has been made available.

Arvind Singh, president of TAI informed that financial problems of developed countries have affected the textile industries in India.

He said besides traditional textiles, there are other opportunities coming up in the sector like nonwovens textiles, medical textiles, geo-textiles etc, and urged everyone to make use of the opportunity.

Prem Malik, president of CITI spoke on the requirement of developing basic infrastructure for the growth of industry. (AR)
