New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated the 'Bharat Tex 2024' exhibition held at Bharat Mandapam and Yashobhoomi in New Delhi from February 26-29.

"We are connecting all the elements of the textile value chain via a 'five f' journey", the Prime Minister said. "This journey includes (beginning the process at) farms, (producing) fibre, (manufacturing in) factories, (executing the product in) fashion, and (taking it to) foreign markets."

A mega exhibition promoting India's textile prowess, fostering international collaborations, and stimulating economic growth, Bharat Tex seeks investments with a focus on sustainability and resilient supply chains, stated an official release. It is a B2B and B2C fair with a focus on the export market.  

“The Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts has a total of 343 participants in this show, including 78 at Bharat Mandapam, Pragati Maidan, and 265 at Yashobhoomi, Dwarka", Dileep Baid, the chairman of the export body, informed. These are leading exporters who have established market linkages across the world. "What they manufacture reaches store shelves in over 100 nations through wholesalers, importers, retailers, etc", stated Baid.

With the participation of buyers from 100 countries and over 100 international speakers, Bharat Tex is said to be India’s largest global textile event organised by a consortium of 11 textile export promotion councils and supported by the Ministry of Textiles. The 4-day event will bring together 3,500 exhibitors, over 3,000 buyers from over 100 countries, and more than 50,000 trade visitors, besides policymakers and global CEOs.
