World awaits India in textile sector: Yogi

New Delhi, Feb 29 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Thursday that the global market awaits India’s skills, innovation, and technology in the textile sector as 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 CM extended a warm welcome to all buyers and visitors at the UP Pavilion and expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for giving the opportunity to participate as a partner state in such a significant event.
He said, "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 PM Modi's initiative, Yogi mentioned that the exhibition, spanning the last four days, saw enthusiastic engagement from individuals nationwide and globally. He said that the textile industry stands as the second-largest employment provider after agriculture, offering boundless opportunities for technological advancements.
He highlighted that in India, Tex 2024 UP 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," he said.
The CM said, "UP holds limitless opportunities in the textile sector. Under PM Modi's PM Mitra Park Scheme, a mega textile park is set to be set up in an area of 1,000 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 flat factories in the state."
He 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 said.
Yogi also visited the stalls from different parts of the country at the exhibition, showing interest in their products.
