Industrial restructuring has made remarkable progress. At present, China has become the world’s textile production and export of power. Statistics show that in 2008 China, the number of EU limits, the former in September China’s export growth in 15 EU countries 33.6%, market share exceeds 35%. Over the past 17 years the United States textile and apparel exports to China increased by 8 times, from the share to enhance the contribution of growth to reach 70%. 1991 United States GDP fell 0.2 percent, China’s textile and garment export growth is still 5.5%.

Since 2007 China’s textile industry since the external economic and policy changes in a series of appreciation of the RMB, the export tax rebate cut, liquidity crunch, rise in value of production factors, especially by the United States sub-loan crisis of the international financial crisis, so that China’s textile The situation has obviously been the industrial decline. Statistics show that last year, China’s textile industry experienced a negative growth efficiency, reducing overall production and sales growth, while industry profits fell sharply. In 2008 the first 11 months, above-scale textile industry and negative growth rate of total profits. Industry losses from the previous year into one expanded to seven percent more than last year. Decline as a result of effective enterprise operating difficulties, large-scale textile enterprises engaged for the first time the number of negative growth. Some analysts pointed out that China’s textile and garment production capacity larger of the United States, Europe, the day the three economies have a strong dependence, in this global economic crisis circumstances, the first half of 2009, the sustained economic recession in the United States and Europe Day will China’s textile and garment industry is now facing a severe test.

The textile industry in China’s economic and social life plays a very important role, to attract the largest number of the employed population of traditional manufacturing and labor-intensive industries, the rise and fall of the textile industry directly related to the approximately 21 million industrial workers in employment, and indirectly affect one million migrant workers of their livelihood. China’s textile industry, the actual degree of dependence on overseas 30%, which means that once the textile export setbacks, China’s industrial development and the employment situation will be seriously threatened. The State Council executive meeting textile industry refers to the traditional pillar industry of China’s national economy and important industries, a high degree of people’s livelihood, the meeting pointed out that the prosperity of the textile industry in the markets, expand exports, creating jobs, increasing the income of the farmers, and promote the development of urbanization plays an important role.

From the domestic situation, the rapid development of China’s textile industry in behind there are some problems that can not be ignored, such as technology lags behind, especially in printing and dyeing finishing the situation has not fundamentally changed lag, lack of R & D capability of new fiber can only be followed behind imitation or rely on imports; ability to innovate is not strong, the number of years to form, growing, processing, export-oriented model, destined to follow rather than lead the product development model, difficult to build international brands; not meet the international market short-period, small volume, multi-species trends.

In fact, after the relevant state departments have for several consecutive weeks improve the textile and garment products in the export tax rebate rate to further ease the export-oriented enterprises cost pressures. In the country to expand domestic demand after the introduction of economic incentives, the textile industry has recommended five areas of the state’s key more than 20 billion yuan of financial aid applications, is currently awaiting approval.
