Myanmar's leading textile and garment show, the 2016 Myanmar International Textile & Garment Industry Exhibition (MTG 2016), held from June 24-27, 2016, saw a substantial attendance of 9,812 professional visitors. Trade visitors including potential investors came from China, Thailand, Korea, Japan, India, Singapore, Vietnam, Taiwan, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, and France.

MTG 2016, organised by Yorkers Trade & Marketing Service Co Ltd, hosted 160 exhibitors from 16 countries displaying a broad range of their latest products and technologies at 320 booths.

The event served as an important trading platform for textile companies from around the world. “The exhibition is beyond my expectation and I am so happy that I find the machine I want at a reasonable price,” said Thet Htoo Min, director of Special One Construction Co Ltd, who visited the fair.

“We met many professional buyers here and received many orders from them. It is certainly a best platform for us to expand our business,” said Tommy Lin, representative of Dotect Needle Co Ltd which exhibited their products.

Way Liang, representative of Myanmar Branch of Asia Holly Engineering (Myanmar) Co Ltd, said “The result of exhibition is beyond this 4 days event, and will keep benefiting the participating companies by continuous customer interaction and tracking orders.”

Alongside the exhibition, two international organisations were invited to share their insights on apparel industry in Myanmar. Smart Myanmar conducted a seminar on 'Introduction to SMART Myanmar's factory services', while Control Union's seminar was on 'Certification demands on sustainability'.

Myanmar's garment industry is currently in expansion mode. Under the Myanmar Garment Industry 10-year Strategy (2015-2024), the country aims to increase its apparel exports to $10 billion per annum by 2024, up from $1.6 billion last year. (RKS)
