At the meeting, Sun Ruizhe, president of China National Textile and Apparel Council, delivered an opening speech on the theme of "Achieving high-quality development and moving forward into the next decade". He interpreted the profound connotation and practical significance of the three key words "consumption", "technology" and "culture" in China's garment industry.
Consumption is not only the direct reflection of people's need for a better life, but also the ultimate goal and core motive force of production. With a population of nearly 1.4 billion, China's market is experiencing a new round of consumption upgrading. In 2018, final consumption expenditure accounted for 76.2% of GDP growth in the whole year, and became the first driving force of economic growth for the fifth consecutive year.
China's textile and apparel industry should make full use of the strength of science and technology, turn crisis into opportunity, and establish new innovative advantages. Textile and apparel enterprises are the basic of economic activities and the main body of technological innovation. We should focus on market demand, accelerate all-staff innovation, all-factor innovation and all-time innovation within the organization through independent innovation and collaborative innovation, so as to build the core competence of technology in an all-round way, and transform the core advantage of technology research and development into the real productivity, leading the industrial upgrading and structural transformation.
While accelerating the development of science and technology hard power, China's textile and apparel industry must simultaneously enhance its cultural creativity and influence.
To realize innovation leap, we need to carry out new genome value reconstruction of innovation elements from a historical, comparative and empirical perspective in a specific context of industrial development. This requires us to control variables effectively and stimulate energy to the greatest extent with greater intelligence and courage, pattern and responsibility.
