The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA) won three gold medals, one silver medal and two bronze medals at the 44th International Exhibition of Inventions Geneva.
Among the gold medals, two were awarded with special ‘jury commendation’ meaning that these were the best among all the gold medals awarded. One of the gold’s with jury commendation was our in-house project, ‘solvent-assisted dyeing of natural fiber.’
According to Edwin Keh, HKRITA's CEO the success of HKRITA at Geneva this year is a great encouragement. This is especially because of the high praise they received for their in-house project. He said, all our projects strive to address the needs of our industry, our economy, and our community. HKRITA will continue to work on innovative solutions and disruptive technologies while driving for a sustainable future. We want these projects to be the first of many more successful collaborations. Hong Kong is the leading global centre for the textile and apparel industry. HKRITA will work hard to support and strengthen the leading position of our industry.
