Chairman Speech



 
Chairman - Dr. Eddie Chan 

The textile and apparel industry in Hong Kong has long been undergone changes. Over the years, the industry evolved from conventional trading & manufacturing base into service-driven hub on sourcing, research, design, marketing, supply chain management, and retailing. Specific knowhow & technologies, experience & expertise, innovation & creativity are essential for riding the new business challenges and opportunities under such the circumstance. HKITA is a professional body gathering a group of enthusiasts and academics, who would like to exchange the better idea in order to thrive the long term development of the industry. 
 
We take our roles to enable the industrial knowledge & practices through different HKITA activities and interactions with members, practitioners and companies. We believe the textiles and apparel sector certainly has the capacity to remain an important position in Hong Kong.
