Aug '09
The upcoming Commonwealth Games starting in October 2010 in New Delhi will prove to be a biggest opportunity for 'Made-In-India' products and in order to boost the global visibility of this tag. So, the Union Minister of State for Textiles Ms. Panabaka Lakshmi stated that the weavers and domestic artisans should come up with products that can attract the attention of international participants.

The Minister was speaking at a 'Buyer-seller' meet held by the National Handloom Development Corporation Ltd and the Andhra Pradesh Department of Handlooms and Textiles. She said that, the Ministry would encourage the products, to be made available at the event, such as decorative items, mementos and gifts made by weavers and craftsman.

On the birth anniversary of Rajiv Gandhi, a website exclusively meant for the handicrafts and handloom sector was launched by the Ministry to facilitate ordering of products by customers across the globe and which will offer the delivery of products within 15 days. Ms. Lakshmi urged the industry people and the weavers to make the utmost use of it.

Besides, the Ministry has started requesting its counterparts in other ministries to use handloom products as decorative items, furnishings in offices etc, in order to promote the handloom sector, added Ms. Lakshmi, who also promised to offer funds to organize more exhibitions and meets to promote the products of the weavers across the country.
