  Exploring Growth Paradigms
  Indian Textile and Clothing Industry
  Since the advent of human civilization, textiles played a significant role in human Life. It is the ancient and the Largest industry in India, established over the years ago. The textiles sector has carved out a special niche, as a facilitator of growth and of participative development. It derives its strength in Large production base of basic raw materials, presence across the entire value chain, availability of relatively inexpensive and skilled workforce and enriched design expertise. However, the prospect of Indian Textile industry is marred by dualistic manufacturing structure, coupled with fragmented small units and declining vertically integrated Large-scale composite mill segment.
  The textiles sector in India gathered momentum consequent upon termination of quantitatively restricted trade arrangement beyond December 31, 2004 by registering a phenomenal 22% growth in the first year. Currently, the Indian Textiles Sector is the Sunrise phenomenon of the economy and holds a great potential for employment and investment. It has been recognized as a priority sector for development during the 11th Five Year Plan. A big Leap in Textiles & Clothing Sector growth is expected to create an additional 12 million employment. India has now emerged as a favourite sourcing destination too. In the prevailing vibrant milieu, it is projected to reposition the sector with a long-term vision (2015) to achieve 10 per cent share of the world textile trade. Riding on a strong investment inflow, the sector has seen 9-10% annual growth which is expected to touch 16% during the 11th Five Year plan.
  However, for about two successive years of impressive growth in quota free markets, the country's textiles exports currently seem to be waning. In spite of steady growth in production, the textiles industry has been plagued with high transaction and power costs, technological obsolescence, multiple levies, labour issues, etc., accentuated by the recent appreciation in Rupee value against US Dollar; thus, perpetuating India's cost advantage.
  Texsummit 2007 - A Structural Roadmap for the Sector
  Ministry of Textiles, Government of India is organizing "TEX- SUMMIT" a conference to deliberate the areas of concern for the Textiles Sector to further boost the productivity and export to realize the potential of the sector to the advantages of economy as well as generation of employment. The Summit is structured on workshops methods to address the major challenges Like raw material availability, appropriate technology, investment climate and opportunities, emerging trade barriers in form of cost etc. The summit promises to bring together the who's who of the Indian Textile and Apparel industry along with several eminent economists to come together and help in formulating the structural roadmap for the industry.
