5,000 textiles, garments firms attend Canton Fair

SHANGHAI, May 5, 2019

Nearly 5,000 exhibitors from the areas of textiles and garments, shoes, cases and bags, recreational products, medicine and healthcare products and food recently offered a detailed overview of their evolving global trade as part of Phase 3 of the 125th China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair).

The fair which opened on April 15 concluded on May 5, and was held in Guangzhou, China.

Maggie Pu, deputy director general of the foreign affairs office of the Canton Fair, noted that facing pressure from uncertainties related to global trade and stricter import standards, Chinese companies’ constant efforts in innovation and improvement of product performances guarantee an increasingly global market share.

In response to an expanding market and the continuously evolving specialist tastes of consumers, top Chinese textile and garments companies are not only offering high-quality products but also actively pursuing customisation and the development of new techniques.

Tianshan Wool Tex, the leading Chinese cashmere brand and exhibitor, known for its creation of a new-standard in Chinese cashmere, has maintained its competitive edge by tailoring production techniques to different countries' consumption habits, winning international recognition such as the Spanish International Textile and Apparel Quality Gold Award and the 15th Paris Quality and Technology Award.

Latest statistics data from General Administration of Customs, People's Republic of China shows that the exports of Chinese garments, toys and seven additional labour-intensive products in the first quarter 2019 increased a combined total of 6.5 per cent more than last year.

Aiming to increase global market potential, Chinese textile and garment companies are gaining increasing market competitiveness on the world stage with comprehensive research and development capability, quick response and service support.

Hebei Bailixin, China's leading home textile manufacturer, which produces a total of 3,200 tonnes of a variety of towels annually, exports to 34 countries and regions in Southeast Asia, Europe, North America and Japan.

Through cooperation with design teams in Japan and Italy, the company is introducing two to three new products every week, with annual export volume reaching $14.9 million in the global market.

Company manager Liu Hong said: “We might face pressure and a more competitive global market this year. But we are optimistic and expect greater demand from emerging markets.”

In addition to showcasing Chinese manufacturing, the Canton Fair also strives to introduce leading international brands into the Chinese market.

The fair features Gohar Textiles and Cotton Empire from Pakistan, the century-old houseware brand, R L Khanna and Shiv Shakti Exports from India, and companies from Turkish textiles and apparel center Denizli, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
