Garment industry trade show planned

CAMBODIA is set to host its first garment and trade sector fair, in an effort to boost regional trade within the industry, Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) Secretary General Ken Loo said.

Cambodia International Textile & Garment Industry Exhibition, co-organised by the GMAC and Taiwanese companies, will run from August 25 to 28.

“We will invite all garment factories [representatives] to view the technology and machinery on show at the expo, which is very important to our garment industry,” he said.
The exhibition will also showcase high-tech machinery for the shoe manufacturing industry, he added.

The event, set to comprise some 200 booths, will be attended largely by Taiwanese companies, though around 20 Vietnamese firms are also expected, according to the commercial counsellor at Phnom Penh’s Vietnamese embassy Vu Thinh Cuong.

“It’s the first time Cambodia has hosted such an event and I think it wants to seek out further business partnerships, as raw garment materials account for around 70 percent of the Kingdom’s export.”

The recent tax incentives implemented by the EU market has been part of the sector's recent strong growth, he said.

Ministry of Commerce Trade Promotion Department Deputy Director Sok Darith also highlighted the significance of the expo in boosting trade in the garment sector.

“This event is going to be very important to our garment industry.”
