Federation appeal to State govt.
The Indian Texpreneurs Federation has appealed to the State government to come out with a system to brand Tamil Nadu’s textile and clothing industry as a sustainable destination for fashion sourcing. It also sought formation of a working group with 50 large apparel companies to work exclusively with Japan. The Association also suggested creation of plug and play parks for the apparel sector under the MITRA scheme in 10 to 15 small towns.
