Knitwear board will help meet goal: Tirupur exporters' body

Press Trust of India  |  Coimbatore 

The Tirupur Exporters Association (TEA) is looking at Rs 1 lakh crore business by 2020 and is hopeful that setting up of a knitwear board, research lab and design studio in the textile hub will help achieve that.

Also, venturing into new products and creating own designs will help scale up business on the expected lines, TEA President Raja M Shanmugham said.

He was speaking at a meeting held by TEA with all stakeholder associations in Tirupur to chalk out a strategy to achieve the goal.

To address housing needs of workers, one lakh houses will be constructed with central government aid. CCTVs will be fixed in all 60 wards in the Tirupur corporation to monitor and ensure safety, a TEA release quoting Shanmugham said.

He sought co-operation of all associations to realise the objective.
