Sportswear from India’s Tirupur to Qatar World Cup 2022 – ThePrint – ANIFeed
New Delhi [India]ANI, 23 November (ANI): A section of Indian villagers were employed to make T-shirts, tracksuits, and caps for shipment to Qatar for the FIFA World Cup 2022.
As per the Omanobserver, Tirupur in Tamil Nadu started out as a knitwear cluster but has since completely changed into the nation’s centre for worldwide textile manufacture.
The export of sportswear to 2022 World Cup venues was a huge benefit for Tirupur and the ports of neighboring states.
According to media reports, some 17 garment consignments were dispatched to Doha from Kerala’s Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) from October 1 to November 12.
CIAL’s senior officer stated that exporting consignments has helped local garment exporters.
“Even though temporary, as the supply would stop after the game is over, there is cheer among the garment companies in Tamil Nadu’s Tirupur and exporters in Cochin,” the official was quoted as saying by Omanobserver.
Tirupur’s transformation into a sustainable global apparel-making hub has set a precedent. Currently, India’s knitwear cluster has undergone a complete transformation into a major global centre for the production of garments.
“For the last ten years, we have been strictly pursuing our ZLD model, and along the way, we have also taken up multiple projects aimed at reducing our carbon footprint significantly. As a green cluster, we have gone much ahead,” said the report quoting A Sakthivel, President of, Federation of Indian Export Organisations; chairman, the Apparel Export Promotion Council and founding president of TEA.
