A rise has been noted in Cambodia’s import as well as export of garment and textile items during the first half of the current year, a report released by the Commerce Ministry stated.
The Kingdom imported garments and textile raw inputs worth US$ 1.5 billion during the six-month period, showing a 23 percent rise over imports of US$ 1.22 billion made during the corresponding period of 2011.
Most of the Cambodian apparel and textile raw material imports were from China, Thailand, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan.
During the initial six months of the current year, Cambodia exported garments and textiles worth US$ 2.1 billion, registering a year-on-year rise of nine percent over exports worth US$ 1.93 billion made during the same period last year.
