Report

Fashion and Textile Industry - 2019 Manpower Survey Report Image

Transformation and Revitalisation

The 2019 survey reveals how the industry’s development has heavily anchored to the trading and servicing sector (over 90% of the total manpower), with a slowly rising trend in testing services and laboratories. While merchandising, marketing and sales jobs will continue to be the prominent manpower pool (around 80% of the total manpower), recruitment difficulties encountered seem to call for non-traditional recruitment strategies to attract new talents to transform and revive the industry to a new era.
