WUHAN - The 89th Textile Institute Conference opened Monday in Central China's Hubei province, with experts expected to exchange ideas to drive innovation in the industry.

The event will bring together over 260 representatives from more than 20 countries and regions to discuss smart textile products, wearable technology and the future of the textile industry.

Textile is one of China's pillar industries, with the country consuming the largest portion of textile products in the world. Moreover, China is the world's biggest textile producer and exporter, making innovation extremely important, said Sun Ruizhe, deputy head of China National Textile and Apparel Council.

"We need to continue to be innovative in the textile industry to usher in a new era of development," Sun said during his keynote speech at the opening ceremony.

The conference, held in Wuhan, Hubei's provincial capital, will run until Thursday.
