CII Textile Mission to China and Korea
19 – 23 August 2019
I am pleased to inform you that Confederation of Indian Industry, Tamil Nadu State office is organising an exclusive Textile mission to China and Korea from 19 to 23 August 2019. The objective of the mission is to understand and learn the best practices, use of latest technology and joint collaboration with Textile companies in China and Korea.
CII International's Vision is to play a catalytic role in linking CII with multiple stakeholders across the globe and projecting Indian industry as a stable and dependable partner. It acts on behalf of Indian Industry in making representations to governments and intergovernmental organisations. It occupies the highest-level consultative status with the government and its specialised agencies.
Tamil Nadu contributes to 1/3rd of the Textile Business in India making it the Textile Valley of India. Tamil Nadu is called the Yarn Bowl of India since it produces 40% of the total yarn in India and is known for its garmenting capabilities. However, with few exceptions, the industry has predominantly focused on cotton as a raw material in the fabric used for production.
Globally, the usage of man-made synthetic fibre has significantly increased as compared to cotton and it is in the ratio of 70: 30. As the potential exist to achieve the government of India’s target of US $ 300 billion by 2025, it is critical that Indian textile industries augment the synthetic textile production in addition to cotton.
There are many types of yarns used for this kind of material which is predominantly used in Athletic wear, functional garments as well as in everyday use garments. In finishing technologies there are many new evolution like seamless stitching etc., which are specifically used for synthetic fabrics. Much of this technology is in China and Korea.
This mission would be a be a win-win situation for both the countries, given the fact that India is a huge consumer market for these products and setting up of local manufacturing units by Chinese companies will enhance good business opportunities. On the other hand, Industries from Tamil Nadu can learn and collaborate from Korea on technological advancements, R&D and innovation; geographical outreach, meeting the customers need etc.
The proposed Mission is to have sectorial meetings with industry and Government in China and Korea.
CII will help in getting visa and suggested Hotels during the visits. Details will be sent to registered delegates only.
