Coimbatore: “Setting up of new Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETP) with latest technologies at Erode and Namakkal will go a long way for the growth of the textile industry in Tamil Nadu,” said Raja M Shanmugham, president of Tirupur Exporters’ Association (TEA).

The Tiruppur Exporters’ Association (TEA) and The Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA) have welcomed the ‘pragmatic’ budget presented by Tamil Nadu today. The two associations have hailed the state’s decision to improve infrastructure to promote technical textiles in the state and the announcement of creating a separate department for textiles.

The State government wil expedite works for Integrated Textile Parks in Tiruppur, Kancheepuram, and Erode.

There is a concerted move by China to subvert Indian economy through underhand dealings, according to international shipping magnates and experts.

The Tirupur Exporters' Association (TEA) on Thursday requested the Union Minister for Ports and Shipping Sarbananda Sonowal to address the shortage of containers for shipping.

Due to shortage of sea containers, exporters opt for the costlier mode to move consignments.
