Arunachal to get 6 more incubation centres to boost readymade garment industry, says Smriti Irani

Itanagar, Sep 14 (KNN) Union Textile Minister Smriti Irani has said that Arunachal Pradesh has the potential to promote textiles sector and give a fillip to entrepreneurship and job creation.

She was speaking after inaugurating an apparel and garment making centre in Pasighat in East Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh.

While dedicating the centre to the people, Irani promised that her ministry would set up six more incubation centres to bring modern readymade garment industry to the state.

It was the first organized effort under the North East Region Textile Promotion Scheme (NERTPS) of the Ministry of Textiles, she said.

Congratulating the entrepreneurs who would be running the facility, the Minister assured them all possible support in making the units commercially viable and self-sustainable.

She said “It will give an opportunity to local entrepreneurs to convert their ideas and designs into flourishing businesses and opportunities to the unemployed trained youths and provide a fillip to the traditional sectors like handlooms and handicrafts to convert the traditional designs into modern garments and market opportunities,”

Irani assured “I have directed my ministry to promote single window clearances and reduce paperwork to the minimum wherever possible.

“I have begun work on creating infrastructure for skills development and textile manufacturing, job creation and market linkages after recent announcement of the Rs. 6,000 crore package by the Centre,” she added.

“The local products can have tremendous demand in national and international markets if properly channelised,” she said.

Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju, MoS (Textiles) Ajay Tamta, Chief Minister Pema Khandu, state Cooperation Minister Tapang Taloh and Lok Sabha MP Ninong Ering were also present on the occasion, an official release said. (KNN Bureau)
