DITP Encourages Circular Economy Products

The DITP is encouraging entrepreneurs in the textiles, garments and lifestyle industry to implement the circular economy concept in designing and developing products.

They should utilise technology, innovation and creativity to lengthen the product lifecycle and maximise efficiency of resource use without creating waste and pollution throughout the production process.

“This will help Thai entrepreneurs to grow their businesses sustainably by cutting costs and increasing revenue as well as boosting their competitiveness, conserving the environment and protecting consumers,” DITP Director-General Somdej Susomboon said on June 16.

Initially, about 30 products are being developed under this programme and they will be launched at the TEXWORLD PARIS in September 2020 in France.
