Favourable market conditions for Intertextile Beijing 2005

Beijing: an important city for the textile trade in the north and north-eastern region of China
With preparations for the 2008 Olympic Games well under way and a soaring economy, the capital of the People's Republic of China doesn't look like it is slowing down any time soon. It is in these favourable market conditions that Intertextile Beijing, the leading international trade fair for apparel fabrics and accessories in China’s north and north-east, will return to the Beijing Exhibition Centre from 31 March – 1 April 2005.

Organisers of Intertextile Beijing 2005 expect a repeat of the last show's success. Over 520 companies exhibited at Intertextile Beijing in 2004, an increase of more than 8 per cent from the previous year. Almost half of exhibitors came from outside mainland China, including national/group pavilions from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Taiwan (China) and Thailand.
A total of 16,334 trade buyers came to see the latest apparel fabrics, fibres/yarns, accessories, textile-related printing and computer technology (CAD/CAM/CIM), design and styling, trade publications and e-commerce.

Beijing is an important province for the textile trade in the north and north-eastern region of China. This area is home to over 20 per cent of the nation’s billion-plus population, and to an even larger proportion of the country’s urban population, the prime consumers of fashion. As the income per capita of the urban population steadily increases, so does the demand for higher quality clothing labels. This is reflected in the attitudes of the local manufacturers towards higher quality fabrics, especially those from overseas suppliers.

Beijing realised over USD35 billion in GDP in the first nine months of this year, a year-on-year growth of 13 per cent. This growth is extremely attractive to international companies with interests in China. The foreign trade volume of Beijing's firms totalled over USD22 billion in the first 10 months of 2004, a year-on-year increase of more than 47 per cent.

Beijing's textile industry, one of the region's growth drivers, is expanding rapidly following the development sustained by the industry in the rest of the country. A growth not only due to a substantial increase in garment exports – China's exports of textiles and garments reached over USD70 billion from January to September 2004 but also to a booming consumption of textiles domestically.

Apparel sales at the top 100 department stores in China increased by more than 17 per cent during the first quarter of 2004 year-on-year. Experts forecast that this upward trend is likely to continue following the significant restructuring in the global textile trade organisation in 2005.

"The fact that the quota abolition will have a positive outcome for China is undeniable and I also expect that the reputation of the textile manufacturers from the north part of the country will expand further," said Ms Katy Lam, Director of Trade Fairs for Messe Frankfurt in Hong Kong. "Over the years, Intertextile Beijing has become the first choice for these manufacturers and buyers to source anything and everything from fibres to fabrics and accessories."
