TN to organise international textile fair in Coimbatore
To encourage and also for the development of the textile industry in Tamil Nadu, the state government would organise an international textile fair at Codissia Trade Fair Complex, Coimbatore this year. This was announced by chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami in the state legislative assembly. The government would spend ₹2 crore in organising this event.

Welcoming the announcement, Tiruppur Exporters’ Association (TEA) president Raja M Shanmugham said Tamil Nadu is a major player in the country’s textile value chain, so organizing the international textile fair would largely help in promotion of the industry, including exports.

“The textile industry in Tamil Nadu is exporting about ₹45,000 crore worth of goods annually, and organising such a fair will help in increasing exports,” Shanmugham said in a press release. “The textile industry will get an opportunity to showcase quality products and penetrate new markets and also get new buyers.”

Shanmugham thanked Phanindra Reddy, secretary, Handlooms, Handicrafts, Textiles & Khadi Department, for his unstinted support and efforts for the announcement of international textile fair in Coimbatore. (RKS)
