IACC (Indo-American Chamber Of Commerce) Textile Forum, in association with US Commercial Service, US Consulate, Mumbai is organising a one day Conference on “America First & Make in India: Together Achieving USD 100 Billion Trade in Textiles” Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at The Hotel Taj Mahal Palace, Colaba, Mumbai.
The objective of the conference is to create, develop and sustain successful bilateral partnership across the textile value chain. In order to promote joint investment and to support favourable trade partnership, there will be representations from two states of USA – North Carolina and South Carolina.
The American textile sector’s strength lies in functional, high end textiles, driven by superior technology and innovations – from heart valves and stents to aircraft bodies and advanced body armour, intelligent fabrics, scientific athletic wear and home textiles. Indian companies could learn and collaborate with US companies and participate in the US textile manufacturing opportunities involving FDI into the US. Similarly, India’s competitive advantage in fibre to fabric, along with its many textile clusters, can meet the ever-growing demand of the American textile industry.
The conference brings thought leaders, policy makers, textile stalwarts, and academicians to deliberate and create a roadmap to deepen trade and investments between both nations, as well as creating textile ethos and ambience which benefits America First and Make in India.
