The Textile Industry in Tamil Nadu fully depends on international market and hence export is important for vital and continuous growth of this sector. In this context, a TN Textile Export Promotion Board is suggested.
The Textile Secretary can be Secretary for the Board with Secretaries of related sectors like Industry, Minor Ports and Infrastructure, Revenue, SGST, Labour, etc members. The Board also may co-opt textile sector associations as members.
Set up a new textile processing Park:
A new textile processing park may be created with all necessary infrastructure including R&D, Common effluent treatment center, etc.
The Park can be set up near River/Sea with Zero effluent discharge facility.
Support to the textile industries for participating in major textile related exhibitions held across the Globe may be provided with the support form or organisations like FIEO. Marketing support may be provided by the State Government by way of subsidized stall charges and travel expenses to be incurred by the exporters for encourage them for more participation.
