Mr. Durai Palanisami in his Keynote Address spoke about the huge opportunity for manufacturers in the South to get into exports of MMFT. While he agreed that the domestic market is huge, he pointed out that situations like the demonetization and GST implementation which resulted in lower business in the domestic market could be offset by being present in exports and hence it is imperative to have a backup plan in place. He spoke of the high per capita consumption of textiles globally and the low consumption in India which presented a great opportunity for Indian Manufacturers and exporters. The limitations of natural fibre meant that the gap had to be filled by MMFT and its blends. He urged the audience to the benefit of the expertise of organizations such as SRTEPC and Grasim Industries.
