The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has set a target for elimination of 1.73 billion metres of textile backward capacity in 2011. The target is applicable to the dyeing and finishing industry in China.

The Ministry has also set target for each individual industry within every province. For example, of the 325 million metres of backward capacity to be eliminated in Shandong province, Shandong Dahaitian Printing & Dyeing Co Ltd and Weifang Qirong Textile Co Ltd have each been assigned a target of 60 million metres.

The target set for Qingdao No.2 Printing & Dyeing Mill is 45 million metres, whereas it is 30 million metres for Qingdao Phoenix Printing & Dyeing Co Ltd, and 15 million meters for Changyi City Shiye Coated Cloth Dyeing Co Ltd.
