Tie-Ups With Foreign Institutes To Train Indian Artisans

The Indian government plans to help impart world-class training to Indian artisans, weavers and young professionals through tie-ups and exchange programmes between Indian textile research institutes and technical institutes in the UK, Australia and Finland.

“With this, it hopes to add heft to Indian textile manufacturing to meet global demand and position India as a sourcing destination for textile products, a market currently dominated by China,” Livemint reported quoting sources.

“The textiles sector is witnessing growth. Trade has increased month on month. This a good sign, but it’s not significant growth. A memorandum of understanding would be signed by National Institute of Fashion technology (NIFT) and the three countries at textiles show Bharat Tex,” the source said.

“Innovation and technology upgradation will drive the textile industry’s growth story,” the source added.

“It’s a well-planned project to upscale textile exports. The agreement with technical institutions will facilitate training programmes that will help in the manufacturing of quality products and increase Indian textiles’ global footprint,” a second source said.

The plan will be implemented across all 19 NIFT’s and eight textiles research institutions, including Synthetic & Art Silk Mills’ Research Association, Northern India Textile Research Association, South India Textile Research Association, and Man-Made Textile Research Association.
