Participating businesses introduce the event’s visitors to advanced technologies, the latest machinery, high-end equipment, and materials in the garment and textile industry. They are scheduled to join experts for a discussion on new trends in the world garment and textile industry, and to analyse the opportunities and challenges facing the industry in Vietnam in the context of the integration process and an era of rapid technological progress.
