Dear Friends and Fellow Members,
Bengal awaits its tryst with destiny. The winds of Change have set in motion events that will have far reaching consequences for the state, its economy and I personally feel the hosiery industry.
Our neighbors, Bangladesh as you all know exports 50 % more of hosiery products than the whole of India put together and I see no reason as to why we can replicate their success on Bengal’s soil. Yes, the obstacles are huge, but with help from a responsive Government and our whole hearted efforts, will not be insurmountable.
