Sponsored by the VDMA Textile Machinery Association, the conference and exhibition “German Technology for the Vietnamese Textile Industry” will take place in the New World Hotel in Ho-Chi-Minh City on April 6-7, 2011. The symposium is officially supported by the German Ministry for Economics and Technology as well as by AGTEK, the Association of Textile and Apparel in Ho-Chi-Minh City.
The two-day event, themed “Innovation for successful business,” will present machinery and technology solutions comprising all fields of the textile chain. In about 20 lectures, German textile machinery manufacturers will report about their latest developments and technical innovations that enable textile producers in the region to enhance their position in the world market.
Throughout the last years, Germany has been one of the main exporters to Vietnam. After two difficult years, the exports picked up again in 2010. From January to November 2010, German exports of textile machinery to Vietnam increased by almost 84 percent to 27 million EUR compared with the respective period in 2009. The Vietnamese demand for German textile technology has been particularly strong since August 2010.
