Focusing on the international layout of the industry for “Textile Together – a community of shared future”, the Belt and Road Textile Conference 2019 convened on October 17 in Shengze Town, China’s Jiangsu province, received wide attention from around the world, attracting over 600 participants, including more than 100 international guests, from 24 nations.
Sponsored by China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC), the conference was jointly organised by Marketing Department of CNTAC, International Trade Office of CNTAC, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT TEX), China Textile International Exchange Center and China Textile Go Global Union. It was also co-organised by the Government of Shengze Town and the Management Committee of Eastern Silk Market China, and specially supported by Jiangsu Textile Association and Donghua University. The conference was presided over by Liang Pengcheng, director general of Marketing Department, CNTAC and executive vice chairman of CCPIT TEX.
China’s textile and garment industry, as one of China’s most internationally competitive industries, has been playing a pioneering role in the Belt and Road Initiative, making remarkable achievements in cooperation. CNTAC, as a unique bridge, also contributed constructive efforts to the great cause of building the “Belt and Road”. Xu Yingxin, vice president of CNTAC, and chairman CCPIT TEX, said in his welcome address that the purpose of the conference was to systematically summarise the achievements of China’s textile industry. On the other hand, it is also to build a consensus, together with the governments, industry organisations and enterprises of the countries along the Belt and Road, on how to better promote the mutually beneficial trade and investment cooperation of the textile and garment industry in the region.
