Coir has got immense potential and can really play an instrumental role in enhancing exports and adding to micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) share in GDP of the country, said the union minister Narayan Rane while inaugurating the „Enterprise India National Coir Conclave 2022? at Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.

Speaking on the occasion Rane emphasised the development of new products and new applications of coir through product development, product diversification and adoption of new technologies.

He added that coir is a good example of „waste to wealth?, which provides a sustainable solution, as it is eco-friendly and helps conservation of water and soil.

Rane stated that the coir industry provides employment to more than 7 lakh people in the rural areas of the coconut growing states. More interestingly, 80 per cent of these artisans are women but its production has so far been confined to the southern coconut producing states and union territories in the country.

He said the ministry of MSME intends to promote coir production in other States in the country and this government has taken numerous initiatives to popularise the use of coir for consumer and industrial use, especially as a replacement for many non-degradable products.
