South Korea stood sixth among garment importers from Vietnam with 2008 turnover reaching $139 million and in the first six months of the year, despite economic crisis, imports totaled $77 million, up 43 percent over the same period last year.

Of the, 1,500 Korean companies in Vietnam, 441 operate in the garment sector. At the forum, representatives from both sides signed a memorandum of understanding focusing on boosting trade and investment in the sector.
