Mexico and Latin America’s leading textile and apparel executives have called for the creation of a stronger textiles trading bloc between Mexico, Peru, Colombia and Chile — an effort they hope will spawn the creation of a “textiles mart” to help the region battle cutthroat Chinese competition.
“Our industries are ready and we can create a Latin textiles mart [market] to improve the quality of our products and showcase them to the world,” Rosario Mendoza, managing board director of the Jalisco State branch of Mexico’s top textiles trade association, Canaive, said during the Intermoda fashion fair in Guadalajara, Mexico. The fair, held from Jan. 14 to 18, received 21,000 visitors, up 5 percent from last year.
