The Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) has urged the Tamil Nadu Government to formulate a policy exclusively to promote exports.
A. Sakthivel, Chairman, AEPC met the state’s Industry Minister Thangam Thennarasu and sought an export policy for the State.
The Minister assured that he would consider the suggestions positively and the Government would extend its support for the growth of industries and exports in the state.
A. Sakthivel also urged the Government to establish parks in the southern districts of the state for different segments of textiles and apparel, such as man-made fibre apparel manufacturing, sewing, heavy textile machinery, textile accessories, etc.
He also added that these parks can come up under the Mega Investment Textiles Park (MITRA), a scheme of Central Government.
The existing parks and upcoming park projects should have housing and hostel facility for men and women workers.
It is pertinent to mention here that recently Tamil Nadu had issued its industrial policy and MSME policy. Both have many lucrative benefits for the industry.
