About the Conference
The Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA) has been enlightening the entrepreneurs and captains of the textile industry by organising annual CEOs conference, Textile Pinnacle (TEXPIN) on various internal and external factors governing the performance and growth of the industry and the strategies to be adopted to achieve a sustained growth rate. The Association has so far conducted 10 CEO conferences on various themes coinciding the Annual General Meeting. The 11th CEO is organised on 9th September 2017 coinciding the 58th Annual General Meeting of SIMA.

The themes hitherto deliberated were aimed at giving necessary inputs to focus on value addition, vertical integration, innovation, automation, prudential-financial management, human resource management, technology management, etc.

In the next three years, sea changes would happen in the business environment. The industry has already started facing the impact of demonetisation, long awaited GST, compliance of code of conduct, sustainability, etc., and more impact of the same would be seen in the next two years. The industry is already struggling with imbalance in the international and domestic raw material prices, higher tariff rates in all the major markets when compared to the competing nations like Vietnam, Bangladesh, etc. Few more challenges that the industry would face include anti-subsidy investigations, few more non-tariff barriers, more and more favoured agreements to be signed by the competing nations with left over markets, etc.

However, the largest clothier of the globe, China is drifting away from textile manufacturing leaving space that would be available to India provided the Government policy interventions favour the industry and the entrepreneurs prepare themselves to convert the challenges into opportunities.

Against this background, the theme for the 11th CEOs conference has been conceived as “Textile Industry – Towards 2020” to equip the industry to mitigate the challenges, grab the emerging opportunities and achieve a sustained growth rate.
