One of the key highlights of the ITMF and IAF joint convention is the spotlight on Uzbekistan’s evolving textile and garment industry both during the conference programme and during the planned factory visits.

In February, the IAF and ITMF released a manifesto to address audit and standard fatigue in the apparel and textile industry.

Earlier this year a two-year memorandum of cooperation was signed by global stakeholders, aiming to improve working conditions and eradicate forced labour in Uzbekistan’s cotton and textile production.

In 2023 the Uzbekistan Textile Association (UzTextile), which represents Uzbekistan’s textile industry, coordinated a high-profile trade visit to the UK to promote the region’s growing textiles sector.
