Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged micro, small and medium enterprises in the textile sector to focus on adopting global standards so that they can partner with global sourcing giants in fulfilling the demand of international players. He urged companies to innovate, tap new markets and deepen the niche in diversity, manufacturing, and design.

The prime minister’s message to the second edition of Global Textiles Conclave 2021 organised by the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) was read out by textiles minister Smriti Irani.

“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic showed how technology can be utilized to strengthen the disruptive resilience of society and transform a challenge into an opportunity. The hardworking textile workers and craftsmen enabled the textile industry to make an invaluable contribution towards meeting the requirements of cost-effective PPE kits within the country,” the prime minister added.

Irani said recent budget announcements will complement India’s consumption of technical textiles in the coming years.

The two-day conclave ends today.
