Solutions to help fashion enterprises upgrade technologies to achieve efficiency were discussed at a round table meeting called “Apparel Tech Up” in HCM City this week.

Organised by ThreadSol, a garment technology provider, the conference aimed at assisting companies to cope with challenges and competitive pressures from exporting nations such as China and Bangladesh.

Experts agreed that fashion enterprises now need to upgrade production technologies to improve their efficiency.

Participants also discussed practical technological solutions for the global textile industry.

Saurav Ujjain, sales manager, ThreadSol, Southeast Asia, said: “Manufacturing 4.0, big data, artificial intelligence are concepts that the apparel industry cannot escape now.

“In the context of globalisation, the technology 4.0 revolution plays a very important role for the manufacturing industry in general and the garment industry in particular.

“In addition, the change of retailers, the current consumer trends for fashion products and the accelerated growth of e-commerce have led to significant impacts on garment production.

“The demand of the garment industry is increasing, orders are sent to factories more and more. To meet that demand, in addition to agile, creative, skilled staff, businesses must think about applying technology; it is indispensable.”

The round table was held for the first time in Viet Nam and followed the successes of "Apparel Tech Up" in Bangladesh, India and Indonesia.

The event in Viet Nam attracted many Vietnamese companies like Viet Sun Investment Joint Stock Company, Esquel Garment Manufacturing Company, Fashion Garments Limited Company (FGL), You PCC Asia, and Grupo Kaybee. — VNS
