Abstract: The cotton textile sector (related printing and dyeing included) is a pillar sector of the Chinese textile industry and a supplier to the downstream garment, home-textiles and technical textiles sectors in the textile chain. It plays important role in accumulating capital, earning foreign currency, satisfying people’S clothing need and offering job opportunities. The cotton textile sector is facing the same challenge as the entire textile industry and suffering from the symptoms such as insufficient investment in innovation, lack of R & D personnel, lack of independent brand and lack of innovative products. So the only way for the cotton textile sector is to play emphasis on innovation and improve its core competence by developing innovative products.
