“Textile is the right tool to livelihood, prosperity, creativity for both genders across cultures and geography, weaving cultures, communities and nations together.

There is an enormous potential and opportunity and this is the right time right phase. India, today is the 2nd largest textile industry globally and has a strong base in textile engineering having indigenous companies as well as multinationals manufacturing in India.

With over 80 years of development and the fastest growing economy with growing textile technology in the African continent, Kenya is on the right path to become Africa’s textile and apparel hub. Kenya, a major country of African Union and prominent member of AFTA, Nairobi, capital of Kenya shall be the apt city to host this international business and technology event in December 2023, thus facilitating access to textile technology, skill development opportunities, technology transfer for the whole of the continent.
