AMITH, the Moroccan textile and apparel industry association, joined The International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF) as a new member association in May 2021. AMITH represents the entire textile and apparel value chain of Morocco.
There are about 1,200 companies in this industry. At the same time, the industry employs about 195,000 people. In 2019, the export revenue of the Moroccan textile and garment industry has reached about € 3.5 billion.
ITMF founded in 1904 is the international forum of the global textile value chain. Its members are textile and garment-producing countries. Those represent about 90% of global production.
Dr. Christian Schindler, director-general of ITMF, said in a press release. “With AMITH joining ITMF a win-win situation is created. An important player and voice of North Africa’s textile and apparel industry will make use of the international network and platform that in return will be benefited from AMITH’s perspective and input.”
Fatima-Zohra Alaoui, AMITH general manager also said, “Joining ITMF provides us and our members with a unique access to a platform of the global textile value chain.”
As the world is getting more and more integrated, so cooperation along the textile value chain and understanding its complexity is supreme.
