The 15th edition of Indonesian International Textile and Garment Machinery and Accessories Exhibition (Indo Intertex) to be held this April in Jakarta aiming to attract 9,000 visitors.
The event, themed "Productivity for Sustainability", will display the textile and garment machinery with the latest technology, vendors of raw materials, chemical laboratory equipment, digital textile printing machines and waste processing technology of 450 participants from 24 countries.
Paul Kingsen, project director of PeragaExpo, the event organizer, during a press briefing on Wednesday said that to sustain businesses, the textile industry need to be oriented toward export and ready-made garments with cost-efficiency by using the latest technology.
Indonesia Textile Association (API) chairman Ade Sudrajat said that nowadays clients requested faster delivery of up to three weeks, less than the previous demand for three months, so technology was needed to meet it.
The textile industry has called the government to lower the stubbornly high electricity and logistics costs in the country and to curb the illegal importation of garments and raw materials that have reduced local industry's competitiveness.
The textile industry has seen a declining trend in exports for the past few years. Export values reached a record high of US$13.2 billion in 2011 before gradually declining to $11.8 billion last year.
Indo Intertex exhibition will be held from April 19 to 21 at JI Expo Kemayoran in Jakarta, Indoneasia.
