Abstract: In the course of transformation toward a market-driven, globally oriented economy, China’s textiles and apparel industries have been experiencing profound changes, both in terms of individual firms’ sustainable competence and the agglomeration competitiveness at industrial level. Among various changes, the most significance should be the phenomenon of regional clusters of various specialized industries. In each of the regional cluster localities, hundreds and even thousands of enterprises of various sizes have been formed and clustered together.Industrial clustering as an economic phenomenon is relatively new in China. No formal investigation and systematic analyses have been found on the phenomenon, especially for the textile and apparel indus try. This research observed and documented a case study of industrial clustering in the Wujiang county of Jiangsu province. Through the analysis, the researchers generalize the factors that account for existence of the clusters and how the clusters sustain high performance of industry competitiveness. As the industry is one pillar of China’s economy, it is important to study this trend for further growth of the industry.
