Rotary International

Warm Greetings to all the Textile enthusiasts!

Rotary is special and prestigious organization. So, it is something I am proud to be a part of, not for what it gives me, but for what it lets me give to others. By putting 'Service Above Self' ,we set an example that cannot help but inspire those around us.

My motto is always 'be positive, be active, be a friend' and Rotary embodies these values. Rotary is a light in our communities and in our hearts. It creates hope in our world and gives meaning to aur lives. It fulfills a basic human desire to reach out a hand to others, to know we have made a difference.

Rotary demands ones' commitment, dedication, sacrifice and excellence in service. Therefore, we organize so many projects which are benefecial to all community. This is our motto to complete R.I. Focus areas. Under this focus, we organised "TEXPOSURE 2018" an event comprising of conference and Textile Trade Fair at Ichalkaranji. The town is one of the fastest growing decentralized textile sectors and is known as the Manchester of Maharashtra.

In the Global world, our Indian govemment started supporting textile industry and its expansion by way or technology upgradation fund scheme, dedicated MIDCS, Textile Parks and Technology mission on cotton.As a result of this, lot of developments are taking place and textile sector is passing through a transitional phase. The fabric manufacturers from Ichalkaranji are now trying to explore the export market by installing shuttleless weaving machines.

Our Rotary Club of Ichalkaranji Central and D.K.T.E. Society's Textile and Engineering Institute, Ichalkaranji have always been trying to fetch the know how of latest developments for textile sector. This is the right time to grab the new opportunities for fabric manufacturers, processors and enterpreneurs looking for lucrative field of garmenting. Hence the fourth event 'TEXPOSURE 2018' is being organized, where the emphasis will be given in this conference cum trade fair on shuttleless weaving, weaving preparatory, knitting, garment and fashion trends, processing and related spares.

I consider it as our honor that eminent personalities and companies from industry and academia have come forward to participate in this 'TEXPOSURE 2018'

I thank the members of Rotary Club of 1chalkaranji Central, Faculty members of D.K.TE., Souvenir Committee, Lead Sponsor, advertisers, exhibitors, speakers, various committee members and their organizations without whose co-operation we could not have achieved this dream project which is the largest and biggest in District 3170 s success.
