Officials from Taiwan are organising fashion shows in China in a bid to attract more import business from the country, it has been reported.

According to the Asia Pulse news agency, representatives from 14 well-known garment companies led by the Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) are looking to establish business links with importers in cities such as Tianjin and Beijing.

The group will also meet with department stores and other retailers in efforts to prize them away from domestic operators, Asia Pulse reported.
