What has been the role of CNITA in promoting the non-woven and industrial textiles industry of China?

Since its existence, CNITA has been playing crucial role as an important organ of the Chinese Government. It has brought in reforms particularly in science & technology innovation, projects advancing, awarding, information issuing, standards building and international exchange of technical know-how.

On the last point however, CNITA believes at developing cooperation on international front. CNITA expects to build more opportunities to communicate and cooperate with the people from industrial textiles sector.

CNITA is always proactive;
  • to work as a bridge between the Government and Enterprises, and to protect interests of its members while adhering to the laws and regulations;
  • to conduct research on the basic information of this industry and propose development blueprint to promote technology;
  • to organize the internal information and communication, technique, training and provide consultation service for this trade;
  • to set up business relations among the enterprises and inter-trades on production, operation, price, quality and so on, and protect fair trade and competition;
  • to work out industrial standard and supervise product quality;
  • to promote cooperation between enterprises and clients, both at home and abroad;
  • to hold China International Nonwovens, Techtextiles Exhibition and Conference;
  • to edit 'Nonwovens and Industrial Textiles Newsletter' and cooperate with other organizations to publish 'Technical Textiles' and 'Nowovens' magazines.
  • Why are China made nonwovens less expensive?

    Nonwovens made in China are comparatively low in cost than others because of easy access and adequate availability of raw materials, necessary equipment and other related factors.

    With further growth in technology and application of high performance materials in the offing, the price of products made in China will obviously increase. Therefore, low cost output in both these perspectives would no longer be synonymous with product from China, in the future.

    Is there any provision for antidumping duty on imported technical textile products to protect and encourage domestic markets?

    The requirement of technical textile is increasing quickly in domestic market, so some international companies are also interested, and are paying more attention in this market.

    CNITA and some related national departments of China also pay attention to products' rendition that might be harmful to our market and enterprises. Moreover, we work within the ambit of international rules and regulations to ensure that there is no deviation from our aim to develop and promote the industry in China.

    What future goals have been set up by the Chinese Government for textiles, particularly for technical textiles?

    Chinese Government is working on the development based on scientific, sustainable, environment friendly, energy saving technology that lowers consumption and causes negligible pollution. Our Government is broadly committed towards improving and increasing product performance and generating value adds within the next two decades.
