CII to tap manpower in Tiruchi for the textile industry

The Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) is aiming to develop the local economy by synergising the strength of labour in Tiruchi with the entire textile industry eco-system in Karur and Tirupur districts where expansion is limited due to shortage of workforce. State CII officials held discussions with the Collector P Rajamani and other senior officials to implement infrastructure for finishing and packing of export-quality textile products being transported to Tuticorin port from the two districts through Tiruchi.

With focus on increasing industrial activity in Tiruchi and promoting entrepreneurship, the CII team also discussed the methodology to use land banks in sub-urban and rural pockets including Tiruverumbur, Manapparai, Thuraiyur to establish industries on cluster basis to harness water, improving air connectivity to domestic destinations, expanding cargo activities and to also help focus on agro-processing.

P Ravichandran, Chairman, CII Tami Nadu said, “The Tiruchi Zone of CII will shortly be releasing the District Development Plan with specific details.” Tiruchi region will stand to gain significantly from the Defence Industrial Corridor project and the proposal of Chennai Petroleum Corporation to establish a new refinery in Nagapattinam district, they added.
