Mr Le Quac An, Chairman of the Vietnam Garments and Textiles Group (Vinatex) says that there are positive signs of recovery in the economy and in the first two weeks of August alone, shipments from the sector touched $360 million.

But, he said the industry would have to export at least $800 million worth of goods to reach last year's export value of $9.5 billion, but added by saying that if everyone strived hard, shipments could reach $10.5 billion.
