Indo-French Textile Machinery Seminar to be held in April

29
Mar '10
The French Trade Commission of the Embassy of France in India, Ubifrance (France's agency for the international development of French companies) and the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers' Association (UCMTF) are organizing a series of seminars: Mumbai on Tuesday, April 20th 2010 and Ludhiana on Friday, April, 23rd 2010. The aim of these seminars is to introduce the French technology to the Indian textile manufacturers and promote Indo-French partnership in order to address the challenges of globalization.

France is the 6th largest exporter of textile machinery worldwide with total exports of nearly1.5 billion USD.

India, with its large textile industry, has a double challenge today:
- meet the requirements of the fast growing Indian domestic market for higher quality products
- stand up to the global competition in order to take advantage of globalization.

In this context, the French Trade Commission of the Embassy of France in India, Ubifrance and UCMTF have decided to organise these two events in India. Mrs Evelyne CHOLET, the Association's General Secretary, during her visit to India in February stated with regard to the organisation of the seminars in Mumbai & Ludhiana: “we recognize the importance of direct communication with our Indian customers whom we consider our partners. Such communication is of particular importance in India where new investments in textile machinery are urgently required to stimulate this strategic sector, as analysed by the Indian Government”.

This event is supported by Office of the Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, Govt of India.

Technopak, Advisors, CII-Western Region, TAI (Mumbai Unit), TAI-PHC, FAITMA, TEXPROCIL, NITMA, FEKTAA (Knitwear Club) & Textile Professionals' Association are the esteemed partners for these seminars.

The Seminar at Ludhiana is sponsored by the State Bank of India (SME Business Unit-1), Chandigarh.

The seminars in Mumbai & Ludhiana will focus on technologies to enable textile producers enhance their position by providing sustainable competitive advantages in the following markets:

Recycling - Nonwovens - Technical textiles - Yarn preparation and yarn treatment - Modern weaving - Knitting - Dyeing and Finishing - Air conditioning of textile plants.

Twelve well-known French companies, most of them world leaders in their specialities, will present their state of the art technologies, analyse the market trends, the business opportunities and offer technical solutions for enhancing the competitiveness of the Indian textile industry in a challenging world. Moreover they will inform the Indian companies on the novelties they will exhibit at ITMA ASIA 2010, next June in Shanghai.

Participating French companies:

LAROCHE - ASSELIN-THIBEAU - PERFOJET - N. SCHLUMBERGER - AESA - RITM - SUPERBA -STÄUBLI - DOLLFUS&MULLER - ALLIANCE - ROUSSELET - CALLEBAUT de BLICQUY.

These seminars will be followed by B to B meetings between the French & Indian companies in the afternoon.
