The government will support small-scale manufacturers, who are meeting export compliances, meeting delivery schedules and support them with finance, legislation, certification, quality control programs and R&D to make them leaders in their respective sphere.
The time has come to focus on the Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), says Smriti Zubin Irani, Union Minister of Textiles and WCD. “The Textiles Ministry will get in touch with small scale manufactures, who are meeting export compliance, meeting delivery schedules and support them with finance, legislation, certification, quality-control programs and R&D to make them leaders in their respective sphere,” said Smriti Zubin Irani, Union Textile Minister, while speaking at a symposium on Emerging Opportunities for Indian Textiles and Crafts held recently in New Delhi. There is a need to diversify our established opportunities instead of leaving the space for one Export Promotion Council (EPC) or one segment, she said. The industry should resolve to ensure that India is not a nation of job-workers but a leader in the textiles sector. The minister appealed to the textiles industry to fulfill the intention behind the Prime Minister’s announcement on anti-dumping duty on PTA and National Mission on Technical Textiles.
