The government of Tamil Nadu would establish 10 export guidance centres in the state covering the Karur district, said MSME Minister T.M. Anbarasan. The purpose of these centers is to expand the share of exports from Tamil Nadu, which presently stood at 9.25 percent.
Addressing the 13th conference of MSMEs organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), the minister stated that Karur, Tiruppur, Madurai, Ambur, Thoothukudi, Pollachi, Kancheepuram, Chennai, Coimbatore, and Hosur are the areas where the export guidance centres would come up, the report displayed.
These centres will have Export Data
opportunities available and details of the products that are in demand in foreign countries for the help of exporters, traders, and industrialists. They could also seek information about the availability of raw materials from foreign countries, according to the statement.
The rationale behind setting up the centres is to enhance the share of exports from Tamil Nadu, which presently is at 9.25%. Besides, only 16 companies had specified their units at the industrial estate for textiles at Punjaikalakurichi, said Anbarasan. He also added that 84 plots out of 100 had not been sold out yet.

Maheswari, Special Secretary, MSME; Sathiyagam Arya, CII Tamil Nadu State Council president; Ramesh Babu, Managing Directory and various other officials were present at the occasion.
