Ms. Watanabe continued to explain the importance of exhibiting at this season's fair, “sustainability is inevitable in this industry and we believe that this fair is an excellent platform for us to promote our eco fabrics to international buyers and agents. Our main target countries are from Europe and the US. As a second time exhibitor, we feel that we will once again meet with our expectations at the event.”
