The 25th East China Fair 2015, a prestigious and preferred exhibition that attracts hundred and thousands of exhibitors and visitors of national and international fashion, gifting, and home furnishing business community opened on 1st March at the Shanghai New International Expo Center in the Pudong New Area. The fair will go on till Thursday, 5th March.
Companies taking part in the East China Fair are targeting the higher-end market to be more competitive but the still-weak global economy and sluggish demand loom large in their strategic planning.
Irma Sun, research and development director at Shartex International Trading Co, a textile and clothes maker at the fair, said that to be competitive, they have to transform to a higher-end market. Although they are in a traditional industry, they use a lot of technology in their production.
Shartex has partnered with Japanese technology firm Toray to produce absorbent-dry and ultraviolet-cut clothes. It has also teamed up with Swarovski to make accessories for clothes. To respond quickly to market demand and become a custom-made producer of clothes, Shartex uses digital printing in its production to beef up its added value.
Although China can now offer upgraded products and the weakening yuan is in the interest of Chinese exporters, traders at the fair said that they are cautiously optimistic about the export outlook this year due to uncertainties in external demand.
Josie Peng, general manager of Dongyang Jirong Plastic Industrial Co, a company making environment-friendly and recycled bags for markets including Japan, South Korea and the European Union sadi that they hope to expand into more markets but the global economy may remain weak and constrain the demand.
