US President George Bush in December remarked that a landmark deal will open-up new business opportunities between India and the US. It is now happening in the high-tech textile sectors. In order to target growth rates, one solution is to focus on the burgeoning nonwoven technical textile sector. Nonwoven processes are used to develop value-added engineered textiles directly from fiber to fabric by reducing the cost with increased productivity. Another milestone is that the US-based Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry is eyeing on India to create a greater awareness on the growing nonwovens industry and try to build a huge industry base in India. As part of the plant, INDA-USA will offer a two day first INDA certified workshop on nonwovens technology from January 4-5, 2007 in Mumbai. It is hoped that this event and the first conference on nonwovens and technical textiles by INDA in Mumbai in October 2007 will foster collaborations between Indian industry and US.
