TAI’s ‘Make in India’ meet on Dec 1
With India getting a fresh impetus to indigenisation following the PM Narendra Modi's initiative of ‘Make in India’ and the textile industry taking a cue from it, The Textile Association of India, Mumbai Unit is organising an International Textile Conference on 'Make in India' on December 1-2, 2016 at Hotel The Lalit, Mumbai.
The captains of the Indian textile industry will put forward their vision, expectations and requirements. How the other textile ancillary businesses like cotton and man-made fibre manufacturers, textile machinery manufacturers, dyes/chemicals manufacturers are going to stand up to the challenge will also be covered in the conference. The technical textiles which are imported in large quantities for infrastructure development whether can be made in India will also be the focal point of this conference.
Many State governments launched their special textile policies, which however did not show any marked results. This is now provided by the Prime Minister’s dream mission ‘Make in India’. Many States like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, etc. have taken initiatives and have re-launched policies to promote the textile industry. The textile industry has been one of the focal points of this mission.
