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 PiechociÅ„ski has put textile industry as one of the ministryâ€™s 15 priority sector for export promotion. Hence, the Polandâ€™s textile and fashion industries will receive state help to promote exports, but cooperation between firms is required.
PiechociÅ„ski, at Ptak Expo international Fashion fair, said that the ministry will pay subsidies in tens of thousands of zÅ‚oty to coalitions of two or three firms aimed at promoting exports.
Poland also plans to showcase its fashion and textiles at this yearâ€™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 EUâ€™s eighth-largest market in terms of sales.
