Over the last ten years, reduced competitiveness especially among European industry specialists, changing priorities in the international textile and fashion market, and world-wide financial un ertainties have caused a global restructuring of the textile and clothing sector. Manufacturers have revised employment patterns and worsening socio-economic conditions have prompted regions to rethink their plans for economic development.

Abstract

Over the last ten years, reduced competitiveness especially among European industry specialists, changing priorities in the international textile and fashion market, and world-wide financial un ertainties have caused a global restructuring of the textile and clothing sector. Manufacturers have revised employment patterns and worsening socio-economic conditions have prompted regions to rethink their plans for economic development. In response to the pressures of a global transformation of the sector, some regions of the European Union with long-standing expertise in the textiles and clothing industry, have joined forces to capitalise on best policy initiatives and to creatively support small to medium sized enterprises or SMEs, in the textile and clothing sector.
