Textile India 2017 to suggest 10-year roadmap for growth
31
Mar '17
Several Union ministers, key policymakers and representatives of the global textile and apparel industry will deliberate on the issues facing the sector at the upcoming mega textile event ‘Textile India 2017’. The 3-day international event, to be held in Gandhinagar during June 30-July 2, is expected to suggest a 10-year roadmap for the sector’s growth.

Textile India 2017 will, for the first time, mark the positioning of an annual textile trade event in the country on the annual calendar of global trade events. There will be a mega exhibition which will showcase the strength of the textile-garment value chain in India. The event will provide an excellent platform for B2B interactions and for exploring investments and technological tie-ups across various segments in the textiles value chain.

Alongside, an international conference will be held with participation from global and national leaders of industry, technical experts and senior policy makers from the Union and state governments. It is likely to witness participation of several dignitaries including Union textiles minister Smriti Irani, MSME minister Kalraj Mishra and power minister Piyush Goyal.

Discussions would be centred on making India a global sourcing hub and an investment destination, exploring the growth potential of technical textiles, identifying productivity and product diversification challenges for natural fibres, and skilling requirements in high value chain.

Further, given the mutual complementarities between the textile industries of India and China, leading Chinese textile companies and industry associations have been invited to attend the upcoming textile event. Earlier this week, the Consulate General of India in Shanghai organised a roadshow in Zhejiang’s Shaoxing to spread awareness amongst Chinese textile companies about the event.

Nearly 120 textile companies from fabrics, machinery and yarn sector participated at the Shaoxing roadshow. A detailed presentation on the overall scope, scale and participation guidelines for Chinese companies was made by Pushpa Subrahmanyam, additional secretary, ministry of textiles. She also answered queries of Chinese companies on issues related to investments in textile practice in India. (RKS)
