Speaking at the the Textile 4.0 conference organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and AP Spinning Mills Association, he emphasized on the need for digital transformation in textile industry.
He stressed the importance for it to adopt artificial intelligence in order to compete with the global market.
The government has announced nine sector-specific policies aimed at promoting the textile industry, he added.
“The government has put in place single window clearance, which ensures time-bound delivery of services to the citizens,” said Reddy.
He further added that work for all the memorandum of understandings inked during the Partnership Summit at Visakhapatnam are underway as per their schedule.
Commenting over the industrial corridors passing through the state, he said “The two corridors will give Andhra Pradesh a great opportunity for industrial growth. A corporation for encouragement of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) has also been set up in the State, Reddy stated.
