Garment Exports Up 11 PercentPosted: Thursday, July 19, 2012
Vietnam exported US$6.5 billion worth of garments and textiles in the first six months, a year-on-year increase of 11 percent.
The country now ranks second in clothing exports to the US market with a growth rate of 8.5 percent, while still retaining sustainable growth in the Republic of Korea and Japan.
The garment and textile sector will continue facing difficulties due to falling demand from major markets such as the US and the EU.
