Speaking at the Inauguration recently, Ajay Tamta, Minister of State for Textiles, Government of India said: “I’m glad to be present here at the inauguration of the 5th edition of Heimtextil & Ambiente India trade fairs. It’s an honour for Indian handlooms and textiles to be presented here and I’d like to congratulate Messe Frankfurt for this initiative. India has been a part of this global event since the past editions and I also got a chance to attend it in Germany. It has been creating job opportunities for small scale handloom & textile artists. This yearly event also gives a push to Indian economy – both for handlooms and handicrafts. I’ve been told that many national award winners and veterans are taking part in this event and it is great to see the industry coming together for this show.”
