YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-02-21 10:00:00 – Poland

Poland has a long history of garment production. However, for the past few years, this branch of the industry has been systematically shrinking. The majority of Polish garment factories realise foreign orders, the number of which is thinning due to the higher costs of production in Poland compared to other countries, especially in Asia.

Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Janusz Piechociński has put textile industry as one of the ministry’s 15 priority sector for export promotion. Hence, the Poland’s textile and fashion industries will receive state help to promote exports, but cooperation between firms is required.

Piechociński, at Ptak Expo international Fashion fair, said that the ministry will pay subsidies in tens of thousands of złoty to coalitions of two or three firms aimed at promoting exports.

Poland also plans to showcase its fashion and textiles at this year’s Milan expo, the minister said.

At present, there are 17,000 firms in the textile and clothing industries employ some 150,000 people making Poland the EU’s eighth-largest market in terms of sales.

Ptak Expo International Fashion Fair is a 3 day event which was held from 18th February to the 20th February 2015 at the PTAK EXPO International Exhibition and Trade Center in Lodz, Poland showcased product from Lifestyle and Fashion industry.
