It’s hosting several seminars focusing on increasing the value of Vietnamese textile and garment products, investment opportunities in the textile and footwear sector and trade barriers from the free trade agreement between the EU and Vietnam.
Saigon Tex 2017 offers garment makers a gilt-edged chance to foster relations with foreign enterprises and explore investment opportunities, acquire technologies to increase local content in garment products and improve quality to meet the needs of local and international buyers.
After the Vietnam War, the southern city of Ho Chi Minh was the highlight of this expo. During the past 28 years, the organisers of the exhibition have always striven to introduce new generation of machinery, equipment and technology as well as input materials and accessories for the industry,
