The event, jointly held by the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS), the Flanders Investment and Trade (FIT) and the Belgian Textile Machinery Association, attracted the participation of 15 leading groups and companies in garment technology solutions from Belgium.
VITAS Vice Chairman Truong Van Cam said that the Vietnamese garment and textile sector is one of the industries to benefit most from freshly-signed free trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the EU-Vietnam free trade agreement.
Vietnam is currently attracting a number of foreign-invested projects in garment and textile production, while domestic businesses are also paying more attention to this sector.
The forum is organised to help develop the garment and textile production in Vietnam, stated Cam.
It also opens up more co-operation opportunities for both Vietnamese and Belgian enterprises, while offering a chance for local firms to learn from the latest technologies from Belgium./.
