Adapt to changing EU norms, experts advise RMG units

Delegates, while recently speaking at a meeting held in Dong Nai stated that, it was necessary for the Vietnamese enterprises to keep ahead of the changes taking place in the EU market, so that they carry on exporting to the markets there.

Nguyen Canh Cuong, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade's European Market Department here spoke of EU being a big market, with around 500 million people residing there.

Earlier, it used to be one of the leading importers from Vietnam, but now with its changing norms as regards safety and environment, exporting to EU is getting difficult, he said. The consumers too were getting in the way of the producers, as far as the social and environmental responsibilities were concerned, he added.

Le Van Dao, Deputy Chairman of the Viet Nam Textile and Garment Association, in consensus with the above said that, they are now required to comply with higher quality, safety and environmental standards while exporting garments and textiles there.

Vietnamese companies have now started to invest in producing more safe and eco-friendly products, he said. For example, Dong Phuong Knitwear Company prepared fabrics from bamboo fiber, while Dong Nai Garment Company used carbon fiber to produce aseptic clothes, he added.

Dao, asked the garment firms to concentrate on making better designs to get more competitive, and also urged them to export actual Vietnamese products and not the ones that are outsourced.

Le Ba Ngoc, Deputy Chairman of the Viet Nam Handicraft Exporters Association, said that the buyers in EU no longer looked for the usual ornamental products, rather they now better like the unusual ones, and that the Vietnamese enterprises should realize this.

The global economic slump last year caused the mutual trade between EU and Vietnam to drop by one-third to US $14.8 billion.
