Tiruchirapalli, Sep 27 (UNI) Union Minister of State for Environment and Forests S Reghupathy today sold the Union Government package to exporters compensating them against the appreciation of rupee by telling the knit wear exporters of Tiruppur that on net they stand to benefit.
Mr Reghupathy made this observation while inaugurating the Department of Management Studies at St Joseph's college here.
Thanking the continuous efforts taken up by the UPA Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he said the dollar value had reduced to Rs 41-42 as against the previous value of Rs 48-49.
Mr Reghupathy said the Government had taken note of the woes of textile exporters, especially of the knit wear exporters of Tiruppur in the State, following the decrease in the dollar value. He assured that both the Union and State Governments would help the textile exporters who were suffering due to the fall in the dollar value.
He called upon the students to encourage tree plantation as it was the only way to protect environment in an effective manner.
State Transport Minister K N Nehru said there was a heavy demand for management graduates at the global level.
St Joseph's Institute of Management, Director A Antony Pappuraj said the institute had recently been approved by the All India Council of Technical Education to start MBA course.
The MBA programme will spread over two years of four semesters.
In the second year, students would specialise any of the functional areas of management such as Finance, Marketing, Systems and Human Resource Development, he added.
