With the aim to woo investors to the mega textile park in the state, Telangana Textile Ministry has signed up for the International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens ― Techtextil India 2017. The Telangana State government will be promoting textile policies and highlighting investment prospects at this trade fair in a bid to attract buyers and investors to the state.

Minister of Textiles, Shri K.T. Rama Rao has confirmed to visit the fair and address the opportunities in store to the textile industry players. He shared: “Telangana aims to strengthen the textile and apparel industries in the state. With this in mind, we have recently launched an aggressive set of incentives which are easily the best support offered by any state. Technical textile is the sunrise sector within this industry with huge opportunities of growth considering its application and demand in various segments. In order to attract this sector, the state offers additional incentives in areas such as capital support, power tariff and land price rebate over and above what is being offered to conventional textiles.”

On announcing a close co-operation with Messe Frankfurt, he further added “The state is also developing Kakatiya Integrated Mega Textile Park in Warangal over an area of 1200 acres with full complement of high quality trunk infrastructure. Through this partnership with Techtextil India and Messe Frankfurt India, we want to reach out to this niche sector and invite them to explore the immense growth opportunities that Telangana has to offer. We look forward to interacting with leading brands and partnering with them to create a roadmap for technical textiles in Telangana.”
