Syed Shahnawaz Hussain, Minister of Industries, Bihar has said there is an immense scope to create multiple textile hubs across the state.
Wooing investors from Haryana and Punjab, he was addressing an interactive session with the stakeholders on the draft textile policy. The Minister was accompanied by Bihar’s Additional Chief Secretary (Industries Department) Brijesh Mehrotra.
The Minister said there is a stable Government in Bihar and it offers a congenial atmosphere for the investors. Before formulating a textile policy, the Minister is talking to various stakeholders. As part of this, he held an interaction with the industrialists from this region.
Emphasising on Bihar’s strategic location for both domestic and export markets and the state’s easy connectivity by road, rail and air, he said that Bihar is quite rich in handlooms and skilled artisans and there is immense scope for creating multiple textile hubs across the state.
Hussain said the aim is to make Bihar a hub of textiles and leverage various advantages in its favour.
It can be mentioned here that few years ago, Bihar made efforts to attract Punjab’s textile companies to invest; however, there hasn’t been any breakthrough so far.
