Vietnam's Thua Thien-Hue province plans garment hub
Aug '16
Thua Thien-Hue province in central Vietnam is planning to spend nearly $300 million over the next five years to become a garment hub, according to Vietnamese media reports.

As the province's plan for 2016-20 period, it will focus on developing the domestic market while expanding export markets. It will also give priority to boosting research, product design, brand-building and promotion. The plan aims for developing a professional apparel industry to change the rural labour structure.

In order to develop the sector sustainably and ensure enough supply of materials for production, the province is working with the Vietnamese government's board of key economic zones to build a centre for supplying apparel materials. The centre would be set up over 400 hectares in the Phong Dien Industrial Zone.

Further, the province is also considering installation of modern wastewater treatment systems to protect the environment, according to the chairman of the provincial People's Committee Nguyen Van Cao.

Thua Thien-Hue currently has six industrial zones, which together house 50 textiles and garment enterprises. (RKS)
