|Italian technology for Vietnam’s garment and textile industry|
Ho Chi Minh City - Sock knitting machine builder Busi Giovanni will be showcasing its technical expertise to garment manufacturers in Vietnam this week where the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (ICHAM) has organized a series of technical seminars.
In the context of free trade agreements such as the TPP or EVFTA to take effect in 2018, Vietnamese enterprises in general and textile enterprises in particular need to increase production capacity to improve competitiveness and meet strict quality demands from Vietnam’s export markets such as the US, the EU and Japan.
One of the biggest challenges for many enterprises is to upgrade the current production technology, much of which is still retrograde and low-yield. Understanding this need, since 2015, the ICHAM has organised a series of technical seminars in collaboration with leading Italian machinery manufacturers to bring Vietnam closer to the advanced Italian production technology, as well as to connect and promote the trade relations between the two countries.
On 13th September 2016, ICHAM will organize a seminar focusing on the Italian garment and textile technology in Ho Chi Minh City, in collaboration with The Union of business associations of HCMC (HUBA). This is the third seminar organized by ICHAM, following the series of technical seminars to introduce the quintessence of Italian technology to Vietnamese enterprises.
"Mechanical engineering represents one of the strengths of Italy, in which the garment and textile technology Made-in-Italy is highly appreciated worldwide," organisers said. "Coming to this seminar, textile manufacturers in Vietnam will have the chance to explore the Italian production technology as well as to seek potential collaborations to upgrade their technology and improve their production capacity. "
At the seminar, three leading Italian manufacturers of textile machineries will present to the audience the most modern technology available in the market for sock knitting machines, garment finishing and global solutions for cutting room:
The event takes place on 13 September at the Ballroom, Nikko Hotel, 235 Nguyen Van Cu, Dist.1, HCMC Vietnam.
