Average export price was around $3 per pair, a gain of 15.8 percent as compared to corresponding period of 2007.

While monthly export volume showed unavoidable ups and downs, average export price rose sharply.

More than half of the exports were from private enterprises; foreign-invested enterprises achieved a small export growth.
