TAIPEI (Taiwan News) - The annual Taipei Innovative Textile Application Show gets underway on Monday (Oct. 7) and features the nation’s foremost domestic textile manufacturers.

The focus of this year's exhibition is sustainable environmental protection. UDN quoted Secretary-General of the Textile Extension Association Justin Huang (黃偉基) as saying on Wednesday (Oct. 2) that sustainability is not only a plus, but a must.

Opening at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, the exhibition will run for three days (Oct. 7-9). This year, 423 manufacturers from 12 countries and regions - including Taiwan, France, Italy, the U.S. and Switzerland - will participate in the exhibition.
