SHANGHAI — China’s textile producers have mostly resigned themselves to lowered expectations, but some exhibitors at the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Fair said they were seeing glimmers of economic rallies in the U.S. and at home.
“The fair is better than last year, the economy and exports are all better,” said Zhao Xuefu, trading manager of Shaoxing Hengyuan Textiles, which manufactures 85 percent for export and sells 30 percent of its output to the U.S. “The U.S. economy is better, so exports are better. People’s spirits are also better.”
