In a resounding success, the Textile Export Promotion Project (TEPP), spearheaded by the Taiwan Textile Federation in 2023, has showcased remarkable achievements, propelling the initiative forward into 2024. The TEPP has been a driving force behind the evolution of Taiwan’s textile industry, which boasts a comprehensive production system developed over more than 60 years. Particularly, the global significance of innovative textiles with functionalities and eco-friendly attributes has positioned Taiwan prominently in international markets.
Beyond its initial focus on aligning Taiwan’s outdoor sports textile products with global standards, the TEPP has expanded its scope in 2023. It now includes the integration of Taiwan’s safety protection textiles into the global market.
