The Textile International Forum and Exhibition (TIFE) 2015 recently held in Taiwan exhibited smart and technologically advanced textile products at its 15th event co-hosted by the Department of Industrial Technology, under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI).

The theme for three-day event held from 5 to 7 October was “Innovation and Value Creation” as per Taiwanese media reports. Bai Chi-chung, president of TTRI said that for Taiwan to retain its competitiveness in the international market, it needs to produce exclusive textile products and provide value added services and products.

One unique product exhibited TIFE 2015 was a heat-resistant smart garment made using USB cables and fire-resistant fabric cable. Another innovative product displayed at the event used fabric for making cable jackets and also invited interest of domestic cable suppliers for Apple, which can be used to power electronic equipments like phones or music players.

Besides displaying key technological advancements in the textile industry, the event had many forums and lectures by well-known domestic and international entrepreneurs, experts, and scholars on topics of common concern like technology, inspection, and marketing management with the aim of driving innovation and sustainability in Taiwan's textile industry.  (HO)
