HONG KONG: IAF opens Hong Kong office
The International Apparel Federation (IAF) has opened an office in Hong Kong as part of wider plans to grow the organisation.
The IAF said its international expansion and the growing number of Asian members it has, "paved the way" to open the office.
In February it named Francis Yük as chief IAF representative in Asia, joining from Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP), where he was senior vice president.
In addition, the organisation launched its redesigned website yesterday (24 April) at the IAF spring meetings in Atlanta in the US, as part of a number of initiatives aimed "to increase value added for its members".
The 28th IAF World Apparel Convention is due to be held in Oporto, Portugal from 24-27 September.
