Dec '06
Not long ago, in the Xishan Economic Development Zone in Wuxi City, Jiangsu Province, a world-class super-large modern textile, garment and leather professional wholesale market over million square meters, Oriental International Textile City Market has emerged quietly. This is a 'world cloth wharf' dedicatedly created by Xishan District,Wuxi City.

Known as the National Textile City, Wuxi has more than 6,000 textile enterprises. Early in the last century, the name of 'cloth wharf' was renowned in the country. In 2005, the City's textile industry achieved an output value of 100 billion yuan, accounting for nearly 20 percent of the city's industrial economy.

In the 'Eleventh Five-Year Plan' of Wuxi government, textile industry is one of the five pillar industries, which the city is committed to fully develop.

Spearheaded by Wuxi Municipal People's government, the Chinese Market Institute and organized by Wuxi Orient International Textile City group, an economic forum of 'revitalize light and textile industries in Jiangsu as well revive the powerful features of 'cloth wharf' opened in Wuxi.

More than 600 well-known people from across the country work together for the reviving Wuxi 'cloth wharf'.

Markets must establish a 'sustainable management' philosophy, from nurturing to growing up; the players must have a forward-looking vision as well as down-to-earth working style. Meanwhile they should also master strategy and tactics in both booming a business and building a business. This is the way in which the people from Orient International Textile City read the market.
