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, including Belgium, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the UK, the US and Viet Nam.

It will also feature several seminars, including on increasing value for Vietnamese textile and garment products, challenges-investment opportunities in the textile and footwear sector and trade barriers from the free trade agreement between the EU and Việt Nam, and today’s global apparel and fashion market.

To be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre, 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.

To be organised from April 5 to 8 by the Viet Nam National Textile and Garment Group, VCCI Exhibition Service Co., Ltd, CP Hongkong Exhibition Organisation Co., Ltd and CP Vietnam Exhibition Organisation Co., Ltd, the expo is an annual event that meets the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry standards. — VNS
