> In­vi­ta­tion to own and start a fash­ion em­pire, while cap­i­tal­is­ing on South­east Asia Trade City’s Asian Ap­parel Al­liance

The Sun (Malaysia) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

HOW many of us are aware of the sheer im­men­sity of the global fash­ion in­dus­try in China and the fact that the mar­ket in China is the largest? From renowned brands and la­bels, those undis­cov­ered or yet-to-be­named, sta­tis­tics re­veal that last year, fash­ion in­dus­try sales in China hit CNY$534 bil­lion (RM345 bil­lion).

Clearly, the Chi­nese fash­ion in­dus­try has evolved tremen­dously in the past decade and looks to be mov­ing for­ward fast. But it’s not the over­all trend of the Chi­nese peo­ple that we’re high­light­ing, in­stead, the propen­sity of China as THE gar­ment man­u­fac­turer, sup­plier and re­tailer and how e-com­merce has helped grow the tril­lion-dol­lar in­dus­try and present this op­por­tu­nity for Malaysians and Sin­ga­pore­ans to take ad­van­tage of and gain from.


Briefly, the gar­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try in China is gar­gan­tuan. Four ar­eas renowned for sup­ply­ing the world with its fash­ion wear are Hangzhou, Guang­dong, Hu­men and Fu­jian. One of the largest com­pa­nies but­tress­ing China’s gar­ment and fash­ion in­dus­try is the Ev­er­green Gar­ment Group, which plays a strate­gic role in the sup­ply and ex­port of gar­ments and has formed busi­ness ties with Malaysia’s Ber­jaya Group to es­tab­lish the Asia Ap­parel Al­liance (AAA).

Af­ter a year of in-depth re­search, busi­ness vis­its and se­ri­ous dis­cus­sions be­tween the al­liance part­ners and Guanzhou’s Coun­cil for Pro­mo­tion of In­ter­na­tional Trade, plus Dong­guan City mayor and Fu­min fash­ion whole­salers and oth­ers, Asia Ap­parel Al­liance is proud to of­fer Malaysians and Sin­ga­pore­ans a chance to tap into the US$60 bil­lion (RM267 bil­lion) global ap­parel mar­ket and con­nect with Asean’s 600 mil­lion con­sumers via Asia’s largest ON­LINE AND OFF­LINE (O2O) FASH­ION TRAD­ING PLAT­FORM.


Busi­ness en­trepreneurs, fash­ion re­tail shops, e-com­merce mer­chants and in­ter­ested par­ties are in­vited to dis­cover more about the op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able in be­ing part of one of the world’s fastest grow­ing in­dus­tries. Only 300 dis­trib­u­tor­ships and shops will be of­fered via at­trac­tive low start-up cost pack­ages.

The AAA plat­form will be lo­cated at the Duty Free Zone called Ber­jaya Wa­ter­front at Stu­lang Laut Jo­hor Baru (pre­vi­ously known as the Zon). Shopown­ers who join AAA have the op­por­tu­nity to open a phys­i­cal shop at the ex­ist­ing mall, tak­ing ad­van­tage of GST and import duty priv­i­leges while con­duct­ing in­ter­na­tional and e-com­merce trades.

Del­e­ga­tion from Ber­jaya and AAA led by Tan and par­tic­i­pated by Ev­er­green Gar­ment Group, Hangzhou man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Zhu Hao­quan. (July 1, 2016)

Tan vis­its Ev­er­green’s mon­u­men­tal fash­ion mall in Hangzhou with Zhu and his team. This is where 12,000 man­u­fac­tur­ers and whole­salers op­er­ate and con­duct their busi­nesses from. (July 2, 2016)
