NEW DELHI : The Union Minister for Textiles, Consumer Affairs & Food & Public Distribution and Commerce & Industry, Shri Piyush Goyal during his interaction with beneficiaries of Textile Sector here urged them in attendance to be vocal for local. “Be vocal for local and take local to global. That’s the clarion call from Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to showcase our products at the world stage”, he said.

Shri Goyal further noted that ramping up textile production in the country will spur income, open up employment opportunities and play a vital role in making the country ‘Atmanirbhar’ as well. The Minister urged the artisans to register their businesses on the Government e-Marketplace (GeM). He said that he has instructed GeM to register all artisans and weavers connected with handicraft and handloom without any registration fee.

Registering on the e-marketplace will boost the visibility of artisans and help promote businesses enhancing their income, said Shri Goyal. He further said that the government would try to facilitate the GeM-registered businesses to be onboarded on major e-commerce websites in the country and push for registering their businesses on foreign websites prioritising handicraft and handloom. He noted that the support of the officials to the handicraft and handloom businesses, especially small enterprises, would help them create an identity through their craft on the GeM website.
