Sharing her thoughts at the inauguration, Smt. Darshana Jardosh said “India’s textile sector is one of the oldest and largest sectors in the Indian economy accounting for one-fifth of the country’s industrial production. The industry must adopt the concept of circularity to extend the lifespan of textiles by upcycling, recycling, reusing, and reducing the textile waste. The growth of the textile sector is one of the top priorities of the government and our efforts are to attract global industries and investment as well as create facilities and infrastructure for textile industry. Our focus should be to create environmentally and socially equitable sector. There are 185+ exhibitors in the exhibition and I am excited to explore the products and technologies at the show of Gartex Texprocess India 2023.”
