Use of local raw materials up in exported goods
Jul '10
Vietnamese textile and garment industries, toiling to secure a place in the domestic market, are using more of country-made materials in their production for export.

Chairman of the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS), Le Quoc An said, the sectors' export turnover crossed US $1 billion during July, thus bringing the total seven months' export value to $5.8 billion, which is 17 percent above the one recorded for corresponding period last year.

Though, cotton exports are rising but still the total export worth is far below expectations. Vietnam in 2009, made about $400 million by exporting raw cloth. This raw cloth was re-processed subsequently, and then was re-exported to foreign countries.

An industry expert said the dyeing industry is still under developed; hence, the apparel and textile industry is confronting severe problems. He suggested that, the country should introduce ways to handle the raw cloth's export as well as importation of processed cloth.

The Vietnam National Garment and Textile Group (VINATEX), has sponsored some key projects that promote use of locally available material for production and for setting up more weaving and dyeing units in Tra Vinh and Thai Binh provinces.
