NDIA: AICCI urges for apparel park in Thoothukudi

he Tamil Nadu government has been asked to take necessary steps to set up an apparel park in Thoothukudi by All India Chamber of Commerce and Industries (AICCI), president of AICCI, JP Joe Villavarayar said here on September 08.

The district has been crowded with new industries after the declaration of the Tuticorin Port as one of the major ports in the country.

Also many more new industries were likely to come up in and around Thoothukudi due to the outstanding performance of the port and upcoming Sethusamudram Ship Channel Project.

JP Joe Villavarayar pointed out that government should develop the periphery covering 50 km around Thoothukudi by providing adequate power, water and communication facilities.

The provision of incentives and concessions from government would attract the industrialists here and outside, to pump in money as they had the advantage of the availability of cheap labour.

The president pointing out existing ready-made garment units at Puthiyamputhur at Ottapidaram taluka in the district said that the creation of an apparel park would, certainly, give the industries a boost.
