The 2018 edition of Textiles and Plastics Investors Conclave, which concluded earlier this month at Hotel The Grand Bhagwati, Surat, Gujarat, India, highlighted the investment opportunities in the petrochemical and textile sectors in the eastern region of the country.
Indian Petroleum and Skill Development Minister Dharmendra Pradhan asked investors from the plastics and textile sectors to invest in the upcoming textile parks in Odisha, at the Conclave.
“Odisha has the immense potential for growth in plastic and textile sectors with convenient access to all the primary raw material need. Few years ago, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had praised the hard work of Odia migrants in Surat and said that due to them, Gujarat was prospering. The hard work of the people of Odisha had helped the growth of textile industry in Surat. Now similarly, Surat investors should come to Odisha and commence plastic or textile factories at Paradip and Bhadrak.”
