The event website says the major topics that will be discussed are: The influence of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) on the region’s textile and apparel industry; apparel procurement; different trends in the region’s labour markets; and the latest government policy on investment in the industry.
