Vietnam adopts German textile technology

More than 600 business representatives and experts from Vietnam’s textile and support industries came face to face with Germany’s latest textile and apparel technologies. The event, held by the by the VDMA Textile Machinery Association and supported by the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS), provided an opportunity for companies to establish contact, exchange information and establish a mutually beneficial co-operation, VITAS deputy chairman Trương Văn Cẩm has been quoted to have said. According to Cẩm, German machinery is of high quality although its cost is high.

If Vietnamese textile manufacturers want to develop modern technology, they should co-operate with high-technology providers to catch up with global quality and labour productivity, feels Cẩm. In fact, a considerable proportion of technologies in Vietnam’s textile and apparel industry needs to be replaced to improve quality, especially those supplying cloth for export garment-making.

After signing Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), Vietnam is increasingly becoming a much preferred textile manufacturing location by companies worldwide. TPP will be instrumental in reducing 18,000 tariffs. Vietnam is almost a sole supplier of textiles among the TPP member countries and an important supplier of textiles and garment to big consumer markets like the US.
