Looking at the figures of the first ten months, apparel exports will easily cross the $13.7 billion mark, up 20.5 percent over 2010 and will also cross the targeted figures.

Positive growth has been recorded to all the overseas markets including to its biggest market – the US to which garment exports touched $5.2 billion, up 15.2 percent in the period.

Vietnam also posted very impressive growth to other regions like European Union and Japan.
