TAI to organise 'Make in India' conference
Oct '16
The Textile Association (India), commonly TAI, is organising an international conference on 'Make in India – Global Vision of Indian Textile Industry', on December 1-2, 2016 in Mumbai. The conference will discuss benefits of 'Make in India' mission for the textile industry. Possibility of making technical textiles in India will also form part of discussion.

The international textile conference will also tell the participants about how the industry is perceived by global brands and retailers, said the organisers.

Multiple state governments in India had launched their own special textile policies, however, they failed to show results. After the introduction of the 'Make in India' campaign, states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Odisha re-launched their policies to promote the textile industry in their respective states. The textile industry is one of the 25 focus sectors of this campaign.

The stakeholders of the Indian textile industry will hold panel discussions to share their vision, expectations and requirements at the conference. It will also cover the methods that textile ancillary businesses like cotton and man-made fibre manufacturers, textile machinery manufacturers and dyes/chemicals manufacturers can adopt to stand up to the challenges they face.

Topics such as Central government and state government initiatives, role of financial institutes in the new initiatives, role of fibres and their contribution, textile manufacturing, technical textiles, khadi and handloom, denim and skill development in textile industry are some of the topics which will be covered at the conference.

Another focal point of the conference will be the possibility of making technical textiles in India, which are currently imported in large quantities for infrastructure development.

This conference will be attended by government representatives, reputed textile professionals and renowned experts from different parts of the world, who will present their papers to over 500 equally high profile participants. (KD)
