Cheap quality Chinese apparels clasp domestic markets

Weakening of US market coupled by anti-dumping charges levied by America and EU on China, has forced Chinese exporters to dump their apparel stock in neighboring countries including Vietnam.

As a matter of fact it has become quite common among local producers to buy cheap raw materials from China and sell the finished products in the domestic market. Especially at a time when China's largest consumer, the US, have abstained from allowing its export products, prices of raw material produced in China have fallen by great margins.

More than 69 percent of apparel exports of China are seeking entry into the ASEAN and African countries.

What concerns local entrepreneurs and officials from Association of Garment Textile Embroidery-Knitting (AGTEK), is the fact that low-cost products made of left-over materials is penetrating local markets at an increasingly fast pace and if the Government fails to adopt remedial measures, Vietnam may very soon witness a collapse of its textile and apparel industry.

Experts believe that with such illegal and manipulated exports, China was actually violating the WTO regulations. Government of Vietnam can easily limit the imports of some categories of products imported to Vietnam in large quantities.

Besides, it is has become imperative for the Government to battle against the cross-border smuggling.
