The share of Alto Parana in Paraguay's apparel exports has been rising since 2008, which increased to 25.2 percent in 2010.

The significantly higher apparel export growth rate in Alto Parana compared to other provinces in Paraguay is an indicator that the garment sector in Alto Parana has already consolidated, said Andino Nelson Amarilla, the Minister of Industry and Commerce.

He informed that there are eight prominent companies in the province which together employ around 1,800 people. In addition, these companies indirectly provide jobs to another 1,000 people.

Global Apparel, Cotton Quality International Inc, Paraguay Vantex SA and MMKM SA are among the list of top 20 companies in terms of exports.
