ITMF's annual conference to be held at Hanoi from Nov 4
Sep '12
The International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF) Annual Conference 2012 will be held in Hanoi/Vietnam from November 4-6, 2012. The theme of the conference “Challenges for the Global Textile Industry – Present and Future” reflects the fact that the global textile industry faces a very difficult business environment.

Volatile raw material markets, sovereign debt crises, currency disputes, political instability in some regions, a blocked Doha-Trade-Round, looming protectionism, growing world population, demographic changes, climate change, … these are just a few of the short- and long-term challenges that the world economy is confronted with and which have far reaching implications for the global textile value chain.

More than 20 high level experts from around the world covering relevant aspects along the entire textile value chain – from fiber to retail – will present their analyses and views during the ITMF Annual Conference 2012 in Hanoi.
