World awaits India’s skills, innovation & technology in textiles: CM Yogi

New Delhi, February 29

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on Thursday, said that the global market awaits India’s skills, innovation, and technology in the textile sector. He added that India exports carpets worth Rs 17,000 crores, with 60 percent originating from Bhadohi, Mirzapur, and Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.

During a media interaction on the fourth day of ‘India Tex 2024,’ held at Pragati Maidan, the Chief Minister extended a warm welcome to all buyers and visitors at the ‘India Tex 2024’ Uttar Pradesh Pavilion and expressed gratitude to PM Modi for giving the opportunity to participate as a partner state in such a significant event. The exhibition showcases the past, present, and future needs of the textile industry, with special emphasis on the international aspect through the Bharat Mandapam and Yashobhumi.

Praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative, he mentioned that the exhibition, spanning the last four days, saw enthusiastic engagement from individuals nationwide and globally. He further noted that the textile industry stands as the second-largest employment provider after agriculture, offering boundless opportunities for technological advancements.

CM Yogi highlighted that in ‘India Tex 2024,’ Uttar Pradesh has demonstrated its expertise in the textile sector, with 20 exhibitors in Yashobhoomi and 46 exhibitors in the Bharat Mandapam. Artisans have displayed handicrafts, carpets, and other handloom products from the state to buyers from across the country and the world and are receiving their appreciation.

“Uttar Pradesh holds limitless opportunities in the textile sector. Under PM Modi’s PM Mitra Park Scheme, a mega textile park is set to be established in an area of one thousand acres between Lucknow and Hardoi, as part of the plan implemented at seven locations across the country. Additionally, efforts are underway to develop four new flatted factories in the state”, he informed.

Yogi highlighted that significant efforts have been made in the past seven years to promote Lucknow’s Chikankari, Sitapur’s Durrie, Bareilly’s Zari-Zardozi, and Bhadohi’s carpets. All of these crafts serve as crucial means for creating employment opportunities. The global textile industry is currently looking at India with hope, he stated.

The Chief Minister also visited the stalls from different parts of the country at the exhibition, showing interest in their products while the artisans expressed their joy on meeting CM Yogi.

On this occasion, MSME Minister Rakesh Sachan, Additional Chief Secretary Amit Mohan Prasad and other dignitaries were present.
