Exports of key garment products beat recessionary trends
Mar '09
In the first month of fiscal year 2009, some key garment products of Vietnam kept its pace of generating good growth in exports, though a few recorded falls too, despite declines in the global textile and garment industry.

Exports turnover of Kimono suit fetched US $11.9 million during the month, a growth of 33 percent over the same period last year, while shipments of jumper (wool) brought in $5.7 million, an increase, though nominal of 3.4 percent y-o-y.

Besides, exports of Jacket Suits rose by 2.7 percent to $70 million and one of the best growth rates was delivered in export turnover of fabrics, which touched $46 million, up 77 percent over the corresponding period of 2008.

But, despite being the largest foreign currency earning product from within the garment export basket, shipments of elastic shirts suffered a decline of 3.25 percent to reach $168 million during the month of January 2009.
