CHINA: Textiles industry must improve structural focus - report
China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) is urging the country's textiles industry to quicken structural development to match advances seen in production, sales and exports, reports said.
The commission said the industry had recorded a meagre 3% rise in profit despite increases elsewhere and said new development requirements were needed to solve this problem.
Issues identified include a lack of independent innovation capability, structural contradictions and labour employment irregularities.
