PM-MITRA Park Planned at Vansi-Bordi – MoU Signed for 1141-acre Project in Gujarat

14 July 2023: As per a report in the prominent digital news portal ‘Desh Gujarat,’ the Government of Gujarat and Government of India have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on July 13, 2023 for establishment of Prime Minister Mega Integrated Textile Regions and Apparel (PM MITRA) Park in Navsari district of South Gujarat. The portal reported that the signing ceremony took place in presence of Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and Union Textile Minister Piyush Goyal.

As per the portal, spanning across 1,141 acres of land in Vansi Borsi, Jalalpore Taluka of Navsari District of Gujarat, this mega-integrated apparel park aims to not only boost the textile industry in Gujarat but also generate new employment opportunities throughout the state, including South Gujarat. The park will facilitate the integration of the entire textile value chain, from cotton to thread, thread to garment manufacturing, and finished garment sales and exports, all within a single location. This integration aligns with the Prime Minister’s vision of ‘Farm to Fiber to Factory to Fashion to Foreign’ (the 5F vision). Furthermore, these parks will contribute to India’s achievement of the United Nations’ 9 Sustainable Development Goals.

The portal Desh Gujarat, quoted Union Minister Piyush Goyal saying “This PM MITRA textile park is not a recent idea but has its roots back when PM Modi served as the Chief Minister of Gujarat. Recognizing the challenges posed by fragmented processes spread across different locations, the cost of our products remained high, and we struggled to compete in the global market. PM Modi envisioned a new approach in the textile sector that would focus on quality, global competitiveness, and promoting large-scale production,” while addressing the program.

“The establishment of PM MITRA Park in Gujarat or any other state is not merely a because of favouritism but a result of intense competition and evaluation of multiple criteria such as connectivity, industrial ecosystem, state policies on industry and textiles, availability of power, water, and environmental impact. After mapping all the locations through PM Gati Shakti Navsari was selected. Also, nobody can ignore the fact that Gujarat has established itself as a frontrunner in various aspects, including logistics performance, the Export Preparedness Index of NITI Aayog, national startup rankings, good governance index, and ease of doing business. These achievements reflect the well-developed ecosystem in the state,” he added as per the portal.
