YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-08-11 10:00:00 – Tiruchi

A three-day Buyer-Seller Meet and Powerloom Textiles Expo, organised jointly by the Regional Office of the Textile Commissioner, Coimbatore, and Powerloom Development and Export Promotion Council (PDEXCIL) is being held in the Tiruchi city, which was inaugurated by Collector Mr. K. Rajamani yesterday.

At the inaugural function, Mr. Rajamani said that Tiruchi, with its strategic location and facilities, offered good scope for industrial development. The industry and trade bodies should come forward to chalk out a plan for enhancing industrial growth, especially in the textile sector, in Tiruchi district.

They should also work towards achieving the goals within a specific time frame. To help them achieve the goal, the district administration would extend all necessary support.

Mr. Rajamani pointed out that with places such as Tiruppur facing problems such as over crowding and congestion, entrepreneurs could be persuaded to locate their new units for expansion in Tiruchi district. He suggested that a camp could be held, with the approval of the government, in Tiruppur to attract investments to Tiruchi.

T. L. Balakumar, Deputy Director and Officer-in-charge, Regional Office of Textile Commissioner, Coimbatore, said that although there were some looms at Manamedu near Musiri in Tiruchi, the district had largely lagged behind in the growth of textiles manufacturing sector.

According to N. Kanagasabapathy, president, Tiruchi District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association, there was good scope for growth in the textile sector and already looms in Musiri and ready-made garment manufacturing units in Puthanatham were functioning successfully.

A. K. Hussain of Tiruchi Textile and Readymade Garments Association, urged officials of the Ministry of Textiles to sensitise people in the industry on the various schemes implemented by the government for the growth of the textile sector.

At the three-day exhibition, around 25 stalls are being put up by textile manufacturers from across the State, which will remain open till Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
