Speaking at the event in Istanbul, Consul General of India Mijito Vinito emphasized the immense untapped potential between India and Türkiye in the textiles sector, an area that has a similar focus and impact on the people.

Chairman Bhadresh Dodhia of the Synthetic and Rayon Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) invited Türkiye's textile sector to Bharat Tex and underlined the vast avenue for partnerships for mutual benefit.
