At the beginning of its establishment, Chinese textile industry was facing the demise of MFA after China’s accession to the WTO in 2001, as well as the turning point of global industry transition and trade structure adjustment. Nowadays, Global Production Network (GPN) is becoming a new feature of globalization. Therefore, research on textile economy has important theoretical and practical significance in enhancing competitiveness, promoting industrial upgrading and sustainable economic development during the process of globalization, industrialization and urbanization.
With more than 8 years’ development, TEMRC has a good research team with more than 20 teachers, who are backbone teachers from Xuri School of Business Administration of Donghua University, accomplishing fruitful academic achievements. The research members have hosted and participated in many research grants of the WTO, the ILO, the National Natural Science Fund, and the National Social Science Fund, etc. The research center also has engaged in some research projects of the local government, industry associations and companies, etc. Beyond this, the research center has already published a range of high levels academic papers in national core journals, such as Systems Engineering, China Industrial Economics, China Textile Industry Development Report, and World Economy Study, as well as several university academic journals and International Symposium, etc. The research center not only has those theoretical achievements, but also has practical achievements. As the research staff members have published crucial research in a series of major international conferences. Meanwhile they are making their voices heard on behalf of Chinese textile academia. And it is playing a significant role in textile economy at home and abroad.
China is in “New Normal” economy at the moment.
