The textiles ministry is exploring opportunities to attract investments for setting up technical textile manufacturing units in Goa considering that the sector has a huge scope in the state, said Union minister Smriti Irani. She added that the ministry is providing adequate support for the revival of Kunbi saree, which is specifically made in Goa.

Chief Minister of Goa Manohar Parrikar and his cabinet colleagues will be attending the Textiles India 2017 event that will be held in Gandhinagar, Gujarat from June 30 to July 2.

International buyers and investors from over 60 countries are expected to attend the fair and those dealing in technical textiles can be urged to invest in Goa, said media reports quoting Irani, who recently visited Goa.

The minister also said that there are weavers in Goa as well as outside of the state who make Kunbi sarees and the government will help these weavers revive the art of making this type of sarees with te help of the art and culture ministry. (KD)
