Canada next big stop for Vietnamese clothing sector

The Vietnamese Trade Office in Canada has advised and suggested apparel exporters to develop new strategies for retaining as well as increasing the market share of Vietnamese garment products in the Canadian market.

According to the trade office, the per capita consumption of clothing in Canada is now one of the highest in the world and the country imports nearly US $20 billion worth of apparels each year, which also makes it one of the biggest markets.

Giving out details, the trade office mentioned that the Canadians had a preference for natural fibre products and most of the goods imported in to the country accounting for a majority share were from the low to medium range.

It further said that, though the Canadian market measured up to just 10 percent of the US market, the kind of orders that were given would be comfortable enough to be serviced well in time.

They also added by saying that, importers conduct transactions based on product samples so these samples must strictly follow Canadian regulations and standards and they often use these samples to attract the attention of wholesalers and retail dealers.

Canadian businesses also attach a lot of importance to transactions by e-mail because they consider it an effective tool and also understand the need to maintain very good business relations with the suppliers at the same time.

For more details of products, certificates of origin, regulations relating to the free trade agreement signed by Canada and tariffs systems in developing countries like MFN, GPT and LDCT, please visit the website of Canadian Apparel Federation.

To get information about the levy of taxes on individual products, enterprises are advised to visit the website of the Canada Border Services Agency.
