Textile bodies like the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) and Tirupur Exporters' Association (TEA) have congratulated Smriti Irani on her appointment as the Union textiles minister.
 
“CITI, the apex industry chamber of textiles in India representing the entire value chain, congratulates Smriti Irani on her appointment as Union textiles minister. CITI welcomes Irani and assures all support and co-operation to her efforts to create maximum jobs and enhance the growth of the textile industry,” CITI secretary general Binoy Job said.
 
CITI chairman Naishadh Parikh and other office bearers, Mukund Choudhary and J Thulasidharan too welcomed the appointment of Irani.
 
In a letter sent to Irani, TEA president A Sakthivel said, “We would like to congratulate yourselves for assuming office as Union minister of textiles and with your latent talent coupled with grasping the issues expediently will be certainly helpful to address the issues and to come out with new strategies for the growth of textile industry which provides more employment next to agriculture in our country.”
 
The letter also requested Irani to help in announcement of the guidelines and procedures to follow and avail the required benefit from the recently announced special package for the garment sector.
 
“With your invaluable support, positive approach and guidance, we are confident that we could fulfill the aim of prime minister, to reach the envisaged export target (garment) of $30 billion from $17 billion in next three years and also provide the employment to one crore people, mainly to women workers,” the letter read.
