The textile parks will enable in bringing the buyers within and outside the State under one roof.

Another resolution said that the power loom industry was undergoing a crisis because of the rise in the production cost and drop in the exports. The power looms in Tirupur, Coimbatore, and Erode districts were not functioning for the last few months. This has badly hit the livelihood of a large number of power loom workers. The State Government should take immediate steps to protect the industry and the interest of the workers involved in it.
