Almost 1,100 delegates from all across India participated in Textile Association (India) - Vidarbha organised 12th International & 70th All India Textile Conference from January 17-18, 2015 at Nagpur.

“The theme of the conference was “Cotton, Textile & Apparel Value & Supply Chain: Global Opportunities & Challenges” covering whole gamut of textile & clothing industry,” a statement from TAI informed.

“Cotton can play an important role to develop Vidarbha,” said Nitin Gadkari, union minister of road transport and highways at the inaugural function.

Gadkari said that people need to change their mind set and think of ways to develop cotton industry in Vidarbha.

“Farmers need to fight poverty and unemployment by using new technology and they could start by setting up ginning and pressing units in villages,” he added.

“Also, by adopting new techniques of farming the yield per acre and quality of cotton could be increased,” he observed.

Maharashtra industry minister, Subhash Desai said the government will issue a list of just 25 permits required to start an industry, and that 52 have been done away with.

He said the state will also announce a new textile policy, which shall have major focus on developing the sector in Vidarbha.

Additional chief secretary – textiles, Sunil Porwal said this conference will create positive environment to attract growth in all segments of textile value chain by using effective supply chain management techniques.

President TAI – Arvind Sinha said fall in crude prices has hampered economies in Russia and Venezuela, which may impact exports from Indian apparel industry.

He added that the Middle-East countries are also in a cautious mode, with the demand already low in the US. However, there has been no cut in capacity utilisation yet, as reducing or shutting down, means more losses.

Past TAI president DR Mehta said the potential growth of Indian textile and clothing industry lies in an effective vertical integrated value chain structure.

“Industry growth is dependent on driven operations like branding, marketing communications, strategic planning, human resource management and logistics management,” he informed delegates.

Conference chairman, Hemant Sonare was of the opinion that in order to envisage Vidarbha as a future textile and garment hub, farmers and entrepreneurs need to bring in value added products to sustain development.

He said the objective of the conference foresees a desired development at every stage from fibre to fashion & will successfully translate the thought process into action to achieve added growth for Vidarbha industry.

He showed confidence that the outcome of the conference will certainly boost confidence of existing & budding entrepreneurs to act as change agents and develop integrated framework to make Vidarbha a textile hub. (AR)
