In the new era, it is an important trend in the global textile industry to strengthen integration among countries. As a representative textile industry gathering area, Keqiao in east China's Shaoxing City is leading the domestic textile and garment industry to go global. It advocates the spirit of integration, shares new development opportunities, and takes on new historical responsibilities, to actively promote healthy and sustainable development of the global textile industry.


2018WTMC is to earnestly promote the international cooperation and development of the textile industry and take advantage of the Belt and Road Initiative to seize the opening-up opportunities.


At present, the government and the industry associations have been encouraging the enterprises to go global, actively gain resources such as raw materials, design, brands, and market channels through overseas investment and mergers and acquisitions (M&As), so as to increase the added value of the entire industry. Now, the domestic textile enterprises are quickening the pace for cross-regional and cross-border layout.


At 2018WTMC, attendees will deeply discuss hotspots and rends of the new round of adjustment and development in the world's textile industry. On the one hand, the conference will focus on the integration of the superior resources of countries to promote complementarity and achieve win-win cooperation between the upstream and downstream of the global textile industry chain. On the other hand, the conference will show Keqiao's role as an important industrial agglomeration area.
