CHINA: Beijing To Establish International Garment Town
Officials in Beijing were on Thursday reported to be drawing up plans for an international garment town that will make the capital's clothing industry one of the country's key foreign exchange earners.
Media reports said trade chiefs have set aside more than $4 million to establish four major garment centres around the city's ring road over the next six years as well as upgrade machinery and technology.
Beijing currently has more than 1,300 garment enterprises with the blueprint including ideas to boost its image through the staging of international design contests and exhibitions. It will also create thousands of new jobs.
