Managers, engineers and teachers from eight “One Belt, One Road” countries began three weeks of discussions at the weekend on how to advance textiles in China's ambitious project.

Organized by the Donghua University, the gathering brought together 20 experts from the eight countries, including Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya and Albania, to assess how the textile industry can take advantage of the initiative.

Donghua University Vice President Liu Chunhong said the university was cooperating with domestic and overseas institutions on textile education and wanted to promote communication to develop the sector along the One Belt, One Road.

Ethiopian Consul-General in Shanghai Mule Tarekegn said textiles were a priority for Ethiopia, and said the sector could help development of many of the countries along “the new Silk Road.”
