INDO-US Collaborative International Textile Conference to Address Timely Issues
International textile trade is at crossroads now with global economic crisis and change in the world economic order. The textile industry, both in the developed and developing economies face problems and have to find remedies immediately. In developed economies such as the United States and Europe, governments are urging consumers to enhance their savings rate. The economic meltdown since December 2007 has severely hurt the export potential of growing economies like India. Particularly in India, lack of quantity and quality of raw materials, value-addition and skilled labor have aggravated the textile crisis. To address these situations, an INDO-US collaborative international textile conference is jointly organized by the USA based Texas Tech University and India based Bannari Amman Institute of Technology in Sathyamangalam, India. Leading academicians and industrial experts from many different countries will convene for three days in Bannari Amman Institute of Technology, Sathyamangalam from December 7-9, 2009 to deliberate on cutting-edge research themes and industry issues.
