Oct '09
The Minister of Industries, Mr Slathia paid a visit to the Wool Utilization Project in Srinagar. He had a look around many units, which include facilities for scouring, carding, spinning, dyeing and finishing of woolen tweeds, blankets and shawls.

Speaking on the occasion, he said, the handloom industry is a core sector of the Kashmir economy and it should be provided thrust, since it has a very big potential for exports in the global markets.

But at the same time, he added by saying, raw materials should be made available to these craftsmen along which it will also help preserving the centuries old tradition and skills of the industry, as young men are not entering the profession.

He said, efforts should also be put into research and development activities to find more end uses for the products that are manufactured by the sector and also expressed satisfaction over the working of the project.
