SHANGHAI — The speed with which Chinese manufacturers have been able to produce yarns with quality on par with those spun by European companies was a central theme at the Spin Expo yarn fair, held March 12 to 14 here.
European exhibitors said competition from China is stronger than ever and is compounded by the Chinese government giving subsidies to domestic manufacturers for yarns they export while slapping steep import taxes on yarns entering the country.
