Chairman's Message

The key role of The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel is to foster research, development and technology transfer in the textile and clothing industry. This will help to sharpen Hong Kong's competitive edge in the global textile market.

We have made good progress since our inception. As projects come to fruition, priority must be given to commercialising research deliverables so as to benefit the industry. Our Business Development team has been devoting sustained efforts to promote our successful projects for industry application.

Hong Kong remains a top player in the global textile industry. To retain our cutting edge, we need to continue to capitalise on new technology. Hence the need for on-going research - HKRITA will continue to identify new projects in consultation with our industry partners.
