Mr Robin Anson to speak at International MMF Textiles conference
Nov '11
Robin Anson, managing director of Textiles Intelligence, has been invited to present the keynote address at International Man-Made Fibre Conference which will take place at the Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedabad, India, on November 18-19, 2011.

He will speak about the future direction of India's textile industry in the light of China's growing leadership in man-made fibre textiles, the declining share of natural fibres in global mill consumption, environmental concerns, and future land availability for growing cotton given the need to grow more food. He will also examine the Taiwanese and South Korean models to see if there are any lessons for India.

Other speakers at the conference will address the need to examine India's current strengths and to explore the growth potential of the man-made fibre sector in the country. Topics to be discussed will include developments in man-made fibres, product innovations, sustainability, strategic management, and technical textiles.

The event is aimed at leading entrepreneurs, top executives, policy makers and others associated with business and trade in this sector, to enrich their vision and help them develop strategies for the future.

Robin Anson is recognised as a leading worldwide authority on textile and clothing industry strategy and trade issues, and is also the editorial director of Textiles Intelligence, one of the world's leading providers of global business information on the international textile and apparel industries.

Textiles Intelligence formed a strategic alliance with Fibre2fashion in 2010 in order to provide South Asian companies with business information on the global fibre, textile and apparel industries. The information is provided through two new publications -- Textile and Apparel Outlook South Asia and Technical Textiles and Performance Apparel South Asia -- which will be available at the conference and can be obtained exclusively from Fibre2fashion.
