HA NOI (Biz Hub) – Germany's latest textile and apparel technologies were introduced to local enterprises in Ha Noi on July 5.
The event was held by the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (Vinatas) in collaboration with the Textile Machinery Association under the Germany Engineering Federation (VDMA).
The forum had the participation of around 650 business representatives and experts from Viet Nam's textile and support industries.
At the forum, Truong Van Cam, Deputy Chairman of Vinatas, said a considerable proportion of technologies in Viet Nam's textile and apparel industry needed to be replaced to improve quality, especially for supplying cloth for for-export garment making.
Viet Nam's garment and textile export is forecast to grow around 10 per cent this year.
The VDMA Textile Machinery Association groups 130 companies manufacturing textile machines and equipment with a value of 3.1 billion EUR (US$3.46 billion) in 2015.
