Govt to further development of technical textile & nonwoven sector

21
Oct '09
The first China International Forum for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens will be held in Shanghai on 22 October 2009 at the Purple Mountain Hotel and will run parallel to the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics taking place from 20 – 23 October 2009. Featuring a panel of international experts, the Forum will provide an invaluable opportunity for networking amongst trade professionals.

This is a precursor event to Cinte Techtextil China, Asia's leading technical and nonwoven textile trade fair which will take place next year from 19 – 21 October 2010 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre, again in parallel with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics.

Over the last 20 years, China's consumption of technical and nonwoven textiles has increased annually by 10% and 30% respectively. In 2008, the total output of China's technical textile industry was 6,062,000 tons, while imports of technical textiles were up 14% on the year before. Going forward, the demand for such items will only increase as the Chinese government's Revitalisation of The Textile Industry Adjustment Plan seeks to promote the application of technical textiles as an important component of its textile industry. The plan outlines efforts to speed-up the development of industrial technical textiles over the next three to five years, and will focus on water conservancy, transportation, construction, agriculture, medical and environmental protection.
