Govt urged to consider problems of textile & garment sector
Jul '08
Attending a conference on boosting textile and garment exports in the remaining months of this year, Mr Bin Xuan Khu, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade, recommended an increase in production and control over expenses to cope with soaring prices of oil.

The Deputy Minister also suggested that for those textile and garment companies who face shortage of labor, shifting of production base to locations with better facilities and plentiful workers would help the country reach its export target of US $9.5 billion.

It was also concluded that companies should approach local authorities with solutions for resolving their difficulties in dealing with administrative procedures. Besides, enterprises must also supervise the activities of these authorities to channelize administrative procedures.

Mr Khu also played responsible by urging power sector to guarantee a steady electricity supply. He concluded by saying that if all the necessary efforts are taken, there is no reason why the $9.5 billion export target cannot be reached.

Delegates representing their respective companies also gave voice to the problems faced by them and called on the Government to come out with policies that would help them to stabilize production and promote exports.

Lack of labors, inaccessible bank loans import-tax refunds, limited co-operation with large enterprises and inadequate infrastructure facilities were some of the major problems brought out at the conference.

Government has been asked to consider textile and garment sector as a priority sector and grant bank loans at preferential interest rates on the grounds that it is one of the largest earners of foreign currency for Vietnam.

During the first half of the year, the textile and garment industry had an export turnover of $4.2 billion, a year-on-year increase of 20 percent.
