The Moldovan SMEs visited the trade fair "Fast Textile - 2015", the most important event in textile industry in Poland. On this occasion the Moldovan SMEs established business relationships with the fabric suppliers for clothing production and the producers of sewing equipment. In the frame of the exhibition, the Moldovan companies participated in B2B sessions, where they discussed different acquisition contracts, collaboration regarding the outsourcing and joint venture partnership with their Polish peers. As a results of these meetings, 4 Moldova SMEs are going to acquire sewing equipment in worth of 12.000 euro.

During study visits, Moldovan companies received information about current innovations and the organization of the technological process in a modern textile company. One of the study visits was dedicated to learning about best practices in managing a textile enterprise as well as development a brand, making it recognized at international level. Likewise, the Moldovan companies participated in a seminar organised to instruct the SMEs how to implement the new technologies and innovations in a textile company in order to become competitive on the European market.
