Lynda Davey, Avalon Group Ltd.’s CEO, will be speaking at the "Second Global Textile Economic Forum," sponsored by the China National Textile and Apparel Council. The forum will be held in Beijing on March 28, 2005. The theme, "Post Quota Times: Textile & Garment Sourcing in China", is an exploration of the new economic order for the textile and garment trade and ways to expand global channels in the textile sector.
Lynda will focus on the impact that the end of quotas will have on cross-border M&A and joint venture activity among Chinese and U.S. apparel and retail companies. Conference information is available at www.ctei.gov.cn/english/adv/2005forum/lt-introduction.htm Attendees will include both national and international economic and government groups, importers, wholesalers, retailers, and textile and apparel companies. We look forward to sharing insights gained at the conference.
