Japan Textile Federation

Japan Textile Federation (JTF) was established in 1970 in the wake of the need for the Japanese textile industry as a whole to respond to the growing demand from the United States that requires the control of the imported wool, chemical fiber, and synthetic fiber products, in addition to cotton products.

    
With taking “creation and reliability” as its basic guideline, JTF has conducted various activities in recent years with focus on trade issues, environmental and safety issues, more proper trade and information transmission projects including collection of diverse information, making a request to the government on policy making, exchanges with overseas textile industry organizations, and others.

  
In addition to the TPP 11 that became effective at the end of the last year and the Japan-EU EPA that will become effective in February this year, early conclusion of the FTA between Japan, China and South Korea, the Japan-EU EPA and RCEP is expected. Acceleration of the flow of free trade will offer an opportunity to increase the stream of commerce for the global markets including rapidly growing Asian markets.

  
Following those mentioned above, our Action Policy for Fiscal 2019 incorporates the seven subjects as shown below:

      1. 1.  Active Approaches to Cope with Trade Issues and Trade Expansion
        2.  Promotion of Structural Reform in the Textile Industry
        3.  Securing and Nurturing Human Resources
        4.  Sustainability in the Textile Industry
        5.  Creation of New Added Values through Promotion of Connected Industries
        6.  Strengthening of Information Transmission Capability and Brand Power
        7.  Response to Taxation issues

The respective members of JTF will enhance their “aggressive” activities to make a new leap forward, in addition to creation of an environment for putting the efforts into enhancement of their competitiveness in overseas markets and strengthening their own “defense,” while improving their corporate health in accordance with the concept of “creation and reliability.”
