A group of SFT staff, including Professors John Xin and Fei Bin, as well as Dr Chen Jianming visited the Qingyuan Textile and Fashion Industry Transfer Park (TFITP) on 4 and 5 June 2024.

Qingyuan is the largest prefecture-level city in the Guangdong province, with an abundance of natural resources and good ecological environment. Located beside the Beijiang River, the TFITP is close to the boundaries of the Guangzhou, Zhaoqing, and Qingyuan cities, and has a convenient transportation infrastructure of railways, highways, waterways and airlines. The city is still under construction, with the target to become the fast fashion smart manufacturing base of China, with an investment of RMB 100 billion in 10,000 acres of open land. The General Secretary of Qingyuan city, Mr Lin Kecong, provided an introduction of the entire park plan to the group of visitors.

Located in the same building as the TFITP are the Zhijing Technology Apparel Fabrics Museum and a branch of the National Standard Testing Center as representative service providers for the fashion and textile manufacturers nearby. These organisations are also expected to serve SFT students in their future FYP activities, as Professor John Xin mentioned during his discussion with the local director of the State Development and Investment Group Co., Ltd, Ms Guo Jingwen.

The leading company in the TFITP, Zhonghua Group, has established a platform called Zhongda Fashion Technology City to attract more companies to join this park and form an integral supply chain of fashion and textiles. The director, Mr Hu Zhonghua, expressed interest in collaboration with SFT to explore innovative yarn spinning techniques. In the past, he has also enjoyed a collaboration with Donghua University in Shanghai by providing internship opportunities and positions. 

The SFT delegation also visited several other companies including Tiansi Pinhui Industrial Co., Ltd., which is initiating an automatic hanger system in their smart factory for T-shirt production. The company director, Mr Shi Xuezheng, demonstrated the high efficiency and accuracy of their digital production line operated by well-trained workers from local higher vocational colleges.
