Although the achievements of the "12th Five-Year" period are outstanding, it is necessary to realize that the cotton textile industry will face greater opportunities and challenges during the "13th Five-Year" period. The industry should expand the domestic and foreign demand, optimize the production structure, strengthen the product innovation and improve the cotton textile industry. In terms of automation level, we should continue to work hard and strengthen our confidence and tide over difficulties. During the period of
"12th Five-Year", the adjustment of industrial structure in the cotton textile industry was accelerated, the technological progress was greatly improved and the cotton policy reform achieved a breakthrough. In the aspects of brand construction, talent training and regional coordinated development, the industry still faced the shortage of innovation, the decrease of cost advantage, and foreign trade competition. It is difficult to improve the cotton system and so on. During the period of
"13th Five-Year", the industry will take the 6 aspects as improving quality and efficiency, diversification of products, optimizing regional layout, building independent brand, realizing international strategy and sustainable development of green environmental protection. The aim of the industry is product production, transformation efficiency, sustainable development and production layout.
