Kulin Lalbhai, Arvind Ltd :The predominantly cotton dependant Indian textile industry needs to look beyond cotton and adopt manmade fibres to outpace its growth, ED of Arvind Ltd Kulin Lalbhai has said. Addressing the textile conclave at the Vibrant Gujarat 2019 on Sunday, he said although India is a cotton rich country, and hence, is able to dominate the cotton value chain, there is a need to look beyond cotton. “ We need to adopt MMF aggressively and export synthetics as well,” he said. Lalbahi added the textile industry can no more afford to remain slow and lazy in big cities. “There is a need to create textile clusters in smaller cities,” he said. He added the industry needs to scale up apparel manufacturing. “We need to go beyond yarn and fabric. India needs to create vertically integrated supply chain, create last mile of delivery to cater to clients,” he said.
