Addressing a group of scientists and technical technologists, Goyal said the industry and academia connect is essential for the growth of research and development in technical textiles in India.

The minister observed that building convergence with academicians, scientists and researchers is the need of the hour.

Goyal also highlighted that the focus should be on the internationally high value-added products and building a structure of brainstorming around problem statements. In addition, inter-ministerial synergy is required for attracting mega research projects in the country, the minister said.
