Hanoi (VNA) – Germany’s latest textile and apparel technologies have been introduced to local enterprises in Hanoi on July 5.

The event was held by the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (Vinatas) in collaboration with the Textile Machinery Association under the Germany Engineering Federation (VDMA).

The forum had the participation of around 650 business representatives and experts from Vietnam’s textile and support industries.

At the forum, Truong Van Cam, Deputy Chairman of Vinatas, said a considerable proportion of technologies in Vietnam’s textile and apparel industry need to be replaced to improve quality, especially for supplying cloth for for-export garment making.

Vietnam’s garment and textile export is forecast to grow around 10 percent this year.

The VDMA Textile Machinery Association groups 130 companies manufacturing textile machines and equipment with a value of 3.1 billion EUR (3.46 billion USD) in 2015.

A similar event will be held in HCM City on July 7.-VNA
