Speaking on the same Maloo Natrajan, Chairperson FICCI FLO Mumbai, said Saree diplomacy and Khadi cult are used to promote the finesse of Indian weavers on the global map. The need of the hour is to communicate, disseminate and engage with not just the global audience but the local population and the Indian diaspora through these cultural expression. The government’s ‘Make In India’, ‘Vocal for Local’ & Atmanirbharta’ program present a huge opportunity to the handloom sector to further strengthen India’s position in the global market.”
