Vietnamese apparel exports to cross set target
02
Jan '15
Exports from the Vietnamese apparel sector are expected to touch US $24.5 billion and thereby surpass the set target by nearly $1 billion.

“The garment and textile sector continues to top Vietnamese exports, mainly due to right strategies,” the Vietnamplus reported.

“This is because of joint efforts of the whole sector and also because of hiking percentage of locally made raw materials to 50 per cent,” Vietnamplus quoted vice president of VITAS, Le Tien Truong as saying.

Vietnam exports garments worth $8.85 billion to the US, $2.38 billion to Japan and $1.96 billion to South Korea, all of whom put together account for 70 per cent of exports from the sector.

Economists said that signed and pending free trade agreements (FTAs) are opening up a lot of good chances for the sector to grow further, as import tariffs may drop to zero in many markets.

Tax incentives to be brought in by the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement, expected to be signed in 2015 are also expected to create more favourable conditions for clothing exports to the US market.

Deputy minister for industry and trade, Ho Thi Kim Thoa was of the opinion that companies should establish their own brands and also meet requirements on quality, chemical management and social responsibility. (AR)
