Cotton Day Vietnam 2021, a forum on trends and solutions to help Vietnam textile enterprises revive after COVID-19, will be held online on December 1.

HCM City (VNA) - Cotton Day Vietnam 2021, a forum on trends and solutions to help Vietnamese textile enterprises revive after COVID-19, will be held online on December 1.

The fifth annual event themed “Sustainability and Transparency You Can Trust” will be organised by the Cotton Council International (CCI) and the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS).

The event will include a seminar with presentations and updated information on the situation of the cotton industry in Vietnam and the world, and trends and perspectives from the world’s leading brands and retailers relating to sustainable cotton.

It will also provide solutions that textile and garment companies in Vietnam need to adapt to market demands after COVID-19.

Speaking at a press conference in Ho Chi Minh City early this week, Vu Duc Giang, chairman of 
VITAS, said that, despite the pandemic, garment and textile exports in the first 10 months of this year reached 32 billion USD, an increase of 10.8 percent compared to the same period last year.

Fibre and yarn exports soared by 52.65 percent year-on-year to 4.5 billion USD, but cotton imports reached more than 2.7 billion USD, a year-on-year increase of 41.86 percent.

Giang said: “Cotton is still the priority of Vietnamese enterprises because it meets sustainable development goal.”

Vo Manh Hung, CCI Representative in Vietnam, said: “The world textile and fashion industry is making strong changes towards environmental protection and sustainable development. Brands are increasingly focusing on materials that are both fashionable and environmentally friendly. Cotton is a very good material for the environment.”

Cotton Day Vietnam 2021 will be organised on 6Connex platform from 8am-12pm on December 1.
