It is not dificult for us to foresee that for a long time to come, it is inevitable that the price of textle and clothing wil rise steadily -the textle andclothing manufacturing industry will have to adopt overseas investment to absorb the pressure of rising costs.
However, in the supply chain of textle and clothing manufacturing. "Made in China" stll ranks first in the worid: However, the manufacturinoindustry in Southeast Asia also has an absolute advantage. Today, with the slowdown of global demand and the popularity of fast fashiondiscount retallers, the "sweatshop" behind fashion is dificult to disappear. At the same time, we have to face the reality that the textile industrof the rising Southeast Asian countries is becoming the main compettor of Chinese textile enterprises. Under the foreian trade situation ofosing price advantace, domestic textile enterprises are also facing difficult chalenges.
