TN should have exports policy for apparels: AEPC


The Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) has appealed to the Tamil Nadu Government to formulate a policy to promote apparel exports. There was a meeting between A. Sakthivel, Chairman of the Council, and Thangam Thennarasu, Industry Minister regarding an export policy for the state. Sakthivel has also asked the government to come up with parks in the southern district of the state to organize various segments of clothing and textile, like sewing, heavy textile machinery, man-made fibre apparel manufacturing, and textile accessories. He also suggested that such parks can also form a part of the Central Government’s scheme of Mega Investment Textiles Park (MITRA). According to him, the upcoming park projects and the existing parks should also have hostel and housing facility for the comfort of women and men workers.

According to a press release, the minister agreed that he would consider these suggestions and the government will also support industries and exports in the state so that they can get an opportunity to grow.
