It has been witnessed the strong growth and development of the Vietnamese Textile-Garment in recent years. The textile and clothing products which are produced in Vietnam have been penetrating to global and domestic markets, making the contributions to the development of the national economy.

The Industry export turn-over climbed up to US$ 9.08 billions in 2009, compared to US$ 1.87 billions in 2001. The Industry has proven to be the key industrial sector in creating jobs and stabilizing the social security, employing more than 2.000.000 labours.

The Textile Research Institute which is an applied research Institute has gone along with the Industry for more than 40 years. It is the member of the American Association of Chemists and Colorists.

Right in the period 2002/2003, the Institute understood the problems and done some probing researches with the assistances provided by the administrative agencies.

In the bilateral meeting between the Government of Vietnam and the Government of Kingdom of Belgium in December 2003, two sides reaffirmed the expectations to support the development of the Textile-Garment Industry of Vietnam and the Government of Belgium would support to set up a Textile Ecological Laboratory under the Project “Strengthening the Textile Research Institute's capacity of conducting the research, training and experimental development of textile techniques, phase II” during 2008-2010.

Today in the atmosphere of welcoming the 65th anniversary of the National Day, 1000th anniversary of Hanoi foundation and 15th anniversary of Vietnam National Textile-Garment Group, the Textile Research Institute hold an opening ceremony of the Textile Ecological Laboratory.
