China builds export..


In the face of growing green trade barriers, China, as the world's largest textile exporter, will build a sustainable supply chain for textiles, which will create a “green channel” for textile exports.

Jiang Zengwei, president of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, said on the 28th China-EU Sustainable Supply Chain High-Level Forum that China-EU textile trade plays an important role in China-EU trade. In 2015, China’s textile exports to Europe accounted for 11.3% of the EU’s total imports from China. Optimizing the sustainable supply chain of the textile industry will further enhance the scale of Sino-European trade and is also important for leading global trade out of the bottom.

The damage of green trade barriers to China's textile trade cannot be underestimated. It is estimated that in 2015, the amount of losses lost by the EU due to various green testing standards was 18.9% of the total textile and apparel industry exported to the EU in the same year. And the EU's new environmental policy - Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) has entered the experimental stage, once it is adopted, it will bring serious challenges to the export of China's textile industry.

The forum will release the China Textile Sustainable Supply Chain Action Plan. According to the plan, we will implement the four major projects of sustainable standards system construction, production intelligence, innovative design, and green brand building, and strengthen the formulation of standards for textiles and textile intelligent manufacturing in every link of the textile supply chain, and strive to 2036. China's textile industry has built a global leading technology system and a sustainable production standard system.

Zhao Ping, director of the International Trade Research Department of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, pointed out that building a sustainable supply chain can break the green trade barriers of textile exports, and also promote the transformation of domestic textile enterprises, and also help improve the development of Chinese trade rules in international trade.
