           The Hon'ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated Textiles India
           2017, on 30th June, 2017, amongst Textiles Ministry and industry dignitaries in a
           colourful ceremony. He appreciated the role of handicrafts and textiles in the
           Indian economy.  This mega exhibition was conceptualised by the Ministry of
           Textiles, Govt. of India, to showcase India’s strength in the entire textile and
           apparel value chain, right from fibre to fashion.  It was a promise to realise the
           Prime Minister’s (PM) vision of ‘farm to foreign’ for India’s diverse textile and
           handicraft products. Textiles India,  held in Gandhnagar, Gujarat from 30th June to
           2nd July 2017, offered a major and significant platform to Indian manufacturers
           and exporters, to showcase the 'Made in India' range of merchandise and an
           opportunity to meet buyers and importers from all over the world.
