Shri Vijoy Kumar Singh, additional secretary, Ministry of Textiles – Government of India, said: 

“I am glad to know that Messe Frankfurt India and MEX Exhibition are organising the first edition of Gartex Texprocess India 2022 in the financial capital of India after successfully hosting the Show in Delhi last year [….] It has been our experience that the textiles industry is majorly dependent on imported machines. There is a need to make most of the machines manufactured in India, particularly in light of current disruption of world logistics services. We in Ministry of Textiles are currently formulating a scheme for incentivising manufacturing of textiles machinery in India. The approach is to incentivise local innovation and at the same time invite eminent manufacturers to set up ventures locally.”  

Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), Retailers Association of India (Rai), Denim Manufacturers’ Association (DMA) and the Gujarat Garment Manufacturers’ Association (GGMA) are among the other top industry bodies extending support to the three-day exhibition.
