The ‘Make in Gujarat – Textiles’ seminar will be held on the third day of the Vibrant Gujarat global summit that will take place in Gandhinagar from January 10 – 13, 2017. The 4-day Vibrant Gujarat event will focus on ‘sustainable economic and social development’ and is expected to be attended by over 2 million people from around the world.

The textile sector is one of the most important sectors for Gujarat as it is one of the largest producers of cotton. The state produced close to 93 lakh bales, which amounted to about 33 per cent of the total cotton production of India, in 2012-13. About 50 per cent of India’s total art silk fabric is produced in Surat and the state is the largest producer of denim with a share of 65 per cent.

Gujarat also boasts over 600 medium and large textile processing houses and contributes to over one-fourth of India’s technical textile output. Additionally, it is the largest producer of man-made and filament fabric in India and the second largest decentralised power loom concentrating state with 50,000 looms (cotton)/8 lakh filament.

Gujarat is also a leader in the textile sector with robust infrastructure and a strong textile policy. The state has about 1,500 medium and large textile units featuring 18 textile related product clusters. Its textile market is expected to grow to $25 billion in 2017.

The Vibrant Gujarat event is being organised by the government of Gujarat and its organisation Industrial Extension Bureau. Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) are the national partners for the summit.

The global summit will provide the visitors an opportunity to interact with key policy makers, industry leaders, global thought leaders, regulators and renowned academicians from all over the world.

Besides giving the stakeholders of various sectors a chance to witness coherent deliberations between sector experts and global luminaries in an array of knowledge seminars, the summit will offer a platform to SMEs to connect globally with potential partners to explore opportunities of collaboration and partnership.

Networking forums like B2B and B2G meetings will help stakeholders interact with each other and exclusive demo sessions showcasing the latest trends and technology, products and services across sectors will also be held at the summit.

Gujarat is also the state partner of the ongoing India International Textile Machinery Exhibition (ITME), a prestigious textile technology and engineering business event, currently underway in Mumbai. (KD)
