Metiabruz to be showcased as hub for readymade garments
Under the Trinamool Congress Government, during the last six years, the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector in Bengal has seen a remarkable turnaround.
In an effort to further cement the leading position of the state, the government will showcase Metiabruz in western Kolkata as a hub for readymade garments in a big way at the Bengal Global Business Summit (BGBS) 2018. This is expected to give a big boost to the MSME sector.
MSME and textiles have been major focus areas of Bengal in various business summits, including in BGBS. The 2018 edition of BGBS will be the fourth edition of this highly successful global business summit, initiated by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
According to an official of the MSME Department, Bengal is the leader when it comes to readymade garments in the country, and Metiabruz contributes to the bulk of readymade garments across the city. However, the area is still unorganised, and so elaborate plans have been made to organise them and facilitate the traders so that they can export their produces to foreign countries.
BGBS 2018 will hold special sessions on textiles, apparel and engineering, involving the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI) and Eastern India Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Federation (EIGMEF) in a big way.
