CHENNAI : Tiruppur Exporters’ Association (TEA) has emphasised on promoting the Tiruppur cluster model across 750 districts of India stating that it will help India clock USD 3 trillion exports in the near future.
Among the top garment hubs of India, Tiruppur contributes 1.06 per cent to India’s overall exports and has transformed itself into a major hub for the textile industry.
Highlighting the achievements of Tiruppur, Raja Shanmugham, President, Tiruppur Exporters’ Association said, “A small cluster like Tiruppur which largely constitutes of MSMEs contributes USD 4.3 billion to the country’s total exports.”
He suggested that the Tiruppur cluster model must be developed across all the districts on a particular chosen product line which will easily help India achieve USD 3 trillion exports in the future.
Calling Tiruppur a unique self-made cluster, Shanmugham said the government must develop a dynamic policy intervention to enable districts to transform into an industry specific hub.
Tiruppur cluster was developed without any supporting factors such as airport or sea ports and devoid of all advantages it has gained 1.06 per cent share in nation’s total export. This is a big achievement for a small cluster, hence this kind of a culture needs to be established all across the country on a chosen product line, he said.
