At the two VDMA conferences, themed 'German Technology meets Vietnamese Textiles' held in Vietnam in Hanoi and HCM City on July 5 and 7, respectively, about 600 decision makers and experts attended.

The delegates came from various countries, such as Vietnam, Germany, France, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea and Turkey.

In addition, a VDMA training seminar for 200 students took place on July 8, at the HCM City University of Technology.

These delegates received information about state-of-the-art technology from 24 participating VDMA member companies along the entire textile chain.

Higher productivity, sustainability, new textile applications, quality improvements as well as 'Industrie 4.0 - opportunities for the textile industry', were a few of the topics discussed at the conferences.

"Vietnam needs high quality and efficiency of German machines to further invest, in particular, in fabric production as well as dyeing and finishing,” Truong Van Cam, general secretary at VITAS said.

“This will help the textile and garment industry to meet the local content requirements and to take benefit from the free trade agreements, such as TPP," Van Cam added.

“Due to the recently signed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the country is increasingly becoming a much preferred textile manufacturing location by companies worldwide,” Thomas Waldmann, managing director of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association said.

Participating companies include; Andritz Asselin-Thibeau, Brückner, Erhardt+Leimer, Fong's Europe, Groz-Beckert, Has Group, Heusch, Mahlo, Mayer & Cie., Karl Mayer and Memminger-Iro.

A. Monforts, Oerlikon Barmag, Reiners+Fürst, Reseda Binder, Georg Sahm, Saurer Accotex, Saurer Texparts, Setex, Textechno, Thies, Trützschler, Welker Spintech and Xetma Vollenweider, were the other companies which participated. (AR)
