TAI to organise meet on ´Make in India´
The abolition of quota system in 2005 witnessed the new emerging markets in Asia and China for textile manufacturing and sourcing by the developed countries in the West. China surged ahead of all Asian countries and cornered maximum market share. However in the last 3-4 years, China faced many problems and its global share started coming down despite China depreciating its currency. This resulted in the pressure on the Indian subcontinent, Thailand, Vietnam, etc. The Indian Textile industry was trying its best to capture the market share and trying to meet the global demands and requirements. It however needed strong push and impetus.
Many state governments launched their special textile policies, it however did not show any marked results. This is now provided by the Prime Minister´s dream mission ´Make in India´. Many state governments have taken initiative and have re-launched policies to promote the textile industry, states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, etc. The textile industry has been one of the focal points of this mission. The Textile Association of India, Mumbai Unit International Textile Conference on ´Make in India´ on December 1-2, 2016 at Hotel The Lalit, Mumbai.
