A senior official at India's Spentex Industries Ltd has revealed plans to set up cotton yarn manufacturing units in Uzbekistan and Egypt.

Amrit Agrawal, Spentex's chief financial officer, told reporters that the company is looking at either setting up or acquiring manufacturing units in the two countries.

Earlier this year, Spentex bought an 84% stake in Indo Rama Textiles Ltd, adding synthetic yarn manufacturing capability to its existing cotton yarn capacity.
