Lack of infrastructure in focus

Textile industry infrastructure development appears to be a developmental issue being seriously discussed in Kannur, which is a major handloom and powerloom textile production centre in the State. Consultation programmes and meetings are organised by textile exporters' bodies here to explore the idea of setting up common production and processing facilities.

A similar function organised jointly by two handloom exporters' organisations here the other day brought into focus what infrastructure or lack of it really meant. A consultant of an infrastructure development company, which has been entrusted with the task of completing 25 Integrated Textile Parks in the country, could not reach in time to attend the function. He was late when he reached here by road from Karippur airport. Having apologised for the delay, the consultant commented that more than the textile infrastructure, the district was badly in need of road infrastructure. That comment was telling about the condition of roads which leaves much to be desired.
