THAILAND: 2005 fashion exports to grow by 13.5%
Thai fashion industry exports are anticipated to grow by 13.5% this year, according to the Thai government's Bangkok Fashion City project.
The initiative said that promotional activity was helping to raise the visibility of Thailand's fashion brands and designs within fashion capitals New York, Paris and Milan.
Bangkok Fashion City director, Pramote Witayasuk, who is also director general of the Ministry of Industry's Department of Industrial Promotion, said the project aimed to move Thailand's fashion market up the value chain away from bulk production.
The Ministry is strongly behind developing the country's fashion sector and wants to help position its capital Bangkok as an Asian fashion hub.
Initiatives include database collection and a fashion library, which includes in-depth details on catwalk shows and industry and trend data.
