The Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) recently submitted a representation to the Indian textile ministry for setting up of a textile machinery park in Surat for promoting indigenous manufacturing and reducing dependence on China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan for such machinery. The delegation was led by SGCCI president Ketan Desai.

Representatives from the textile industry discussed the issue with the ministry in New Delhi.

Textile machinery manufacturers in Surat and south Gujarat are capable of matching the standards of the machine manufacturers abroad, Desai told a leading English-language daily.

According to him, about 7,500 embroidery machines and more than 3,000 water-jet and air-jet machines are imported by the city every year.

Former SGCCI president Hetal Mehta said a detailed report on the import of textile machinery will be prepared and submitted to the ministry for further action. Along with the machinery park, the chamber has also demanded that indigenous manufacturers be offered facilities for research and development.
