HCM CITY — The Vietnam Saigon Textile and Garment Industry/Fabric and Garment Accessories Expo (Saigon Tex 2017) that will showcase high-end machinery and equipment and feedstock for the textile and garment industry will be held in HCM City next month.
The 35,000sq.m expo is expected to attract nearly 1,200 exhibitors from 23 countries and territories.
It will also feature several seminars, including those on increasing value for Vietnamese textile and garment products, challenges and investment opportunities in the textile and footwear sector, trade barriers from the free trade agreement between the EU and Việt Nam, as well as today’s global apparel and fashion market.
To be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre from April 5 to 8, Saigon Tex will offer garment companies a gilt-edged chance to foster relations with foreign enterprises and seek investment opportunities while enhancing technology transfer to increase local content in garment products and improving product quality to meet the needs of local and international buyers.
This will enhance the value of Vietnamese garment and textile products, contributing to the development of the industry amid the country’s international integration.
The expo, jointly organised by the Việt Nam National Textile and Garment Group, VCCI Exhibition Service Co., Ltd, CP Hongkong Exhibition Organisation Co., Ltd and CP Vietnam Exhibition Organisation Co., Ltd, is an annual event that meets the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry standards. — VNS
