EDANA to co-sponsor ANFA Indonesia Nonwovens Workshop
EDANA, the international association serving nonwovens and related industry is co-sponsoring a one day workshop to promote the development of nonwovens and Technical Textiles in Indonesia on December 17, 2013 at Bandung Convention Centre, Bandung
The workshop is organised by ANFA the Asian Nonwoven Fabrics Association (long time cooperation with EDANA exists), SYNIA, the Industry and Commerce Association of West Java Province and the Yangtze River Delta Nonwovens Industry Association. Additional co-organisers include TNFIA, the Taiwan Nonwoven Fabrics Industry Association, HKNA the Hong Kong Nonwovens Association, and UBM Indonesia.
Indonesia has a growing nonwovens and technical textiles sector, with a smooth transition of many producers willing to diversify from traditional textile production. Responding to the strength of the Indonesian market, demand from the local population, and interest from international trading partners, ANFA, as the representative of the nonwovens industry in Asia, has taken the lead to organise the workshop that will include a morning workshop with reports and discussions from the industry’s regional and global representatives, and an opportunity for companies to exhibit their products and network with industry participants in the afternoon.
For EDANA this is the first step and EDANA welcomes further opportunities to work with Indonesian representatives, such as via a fully fledged conference, in order to support the sustainable development of the nonwovens and related industries.
ANFA was founded in 2000, and it represents Asia’s nonwovens industry by contributing to the healthy growth of nonwovens related industries in Asia, and by promoting the mutual benefit and friendly relationship of its members. ANFA has more than 300 member companies representing the primary companies of Asia’s nonwovens industry.
