Irani Urges To Participate In Textiles India ’17

Textiles minister Smriti Zubin Irani has appealed to the textile entrepreneurs to participate in the mega event Textiles India-2017 to be organised in Gandhinagar, Gujarat from June 30.

At the recently conducted roadshow of the event at Panipat, Irani highlighted the fact that only textile industry has recorded an increase of 20 per cent in the last five years, while the handloom industry is presently estimated worth approximately Rs. 37,000 crore in both home and overseas markets.

She also requested transport minister Krishan Lal Panwar and MP Ashwini Chopra to address the grievances and note the suggestions of entrepreneurs regarding the local issues and to solve them. She asked the ministers to discuss matters furtherwith Haryana chief minister, Manohar Lal Khatter.

Panwar said, “Panipat is well-known and appreciated all over the world for its handloom industry. We always try to encourage more and more people to get them involved in this sector and to their business. We tend to provide them the best of facilities for which the state government also implemented Enterprises Promotion Policy.”

The centre will also soon set up a facilitation centre for textiles and handloom industry with state-of-the-art facilities including a laboratory in Panipat. Irani also visited the cotton nylon and coir manufacturing unit in the district.
