Textiles Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar paid rich compliment to Mizoram while inaugurating an apparel and garment making centre in Aizwal, saying that it can potentially change the face of the textile sector in the North East region, according to an official statement.

“Being an unconventional project and the first of its kind experiment in the region, the apprehensions are genuine. But I am confident that the fashion savvy state like Mizoram has all the potential to change the face of the textile sector in the region if they are supported with enabling policies and an environment conducive for the growth of the industry,” Gangwar said while dedicating the Apparel and Garment Making Centre to the people of Mizoram on Saturday.

He said the centre is designed to provide new avenues to local entrepreneurs and create job opportunities in the North East, and hoped.

that the Apparel Centre would promote entrepreneurship in the garment industry in the state and open new avenues of employment for the local people.

“The Centre has been set up to give an opportunity to local entrepreneurs to convert their ideas and designs into flourishing businesses. The Apparel and Garment Making centres are a reflection of the commitment of the Government to create new opportunities for the youth under Make in India scheme of the Government of India. The Centre will not only provide new avenues to the local entrepreneurs but also create additional employment opportunities for the local people,” he said.

Congratulating the young entrepreneurs who would be running the facility, the Minister assured all possible support to them in making the units commercially viable and self-sustainable, and in setting up the requisite ecosystem for apparel manufacturing in the region. He said that they may also dovetail with other schemes of Government of India, in order to avail financial assistance to start the business.

Mizoram has been sanctioned six projects across sericulture, handlooms and apparel and garmenting with a total project cost of Rs. 114.82 cr, with the Central Government's share being Rs. 102.90 cr.

To maximize the benefits under the projects it is important to achieve convergence across all the projects so that an ecosystem of integrated value chain with requisite backward and forward linkages is created, he said. (SH)
