New Delhi/ Gurugram 17th March 2023: Shri Naren Goenka, Chairman AEPC has expressed his deep gratitude to the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for announcing the names of the states where 7 mega textiles parks will be set up. The Ministry of Textiles will set up these 7 Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel (PM MITRA) Parks in the states of Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Maharashtra, UP, MP, Gujarat and Karnataka.

Speaking on the development, Shri Naren Goenka, Chairman AEPC stated that, “PM MITRA will re-establish India’s dominance as a global textiles leader.
