Jul '13
China’s exports of primary textiles, mainly yarn and fabric, to Vietnam and Bangladesh showed an increase during the first six months of the current year, according to the Customs data.
Vietnam and Bangladesh were the main destinations for exports of natural fibre textiles from China, during the first half of 2013. The export earnings from these countries in the first half were US$ 1.39 billion (increased by 27 percent year-on-year) and US$ 11.4 billion (increased by 29.9 percent), respectively. 
The exports of textiles from the Chinese mainland to specially administered territory of Hong Kong also grew by 29 percent year-on-year to US$ 2.05 billion, from January to June 2013.
Overall, China’s textile exports registered a significant recovery in the first half especially in the exports of textile raw materials, textile machinery and apparel. 
Although showing clear signs of recovery, the Chinese textile sector still face difficulties owing to the rapid appreciation of the RMB and increasing labor costs.
According to the data by Customs, the total exports of Chinese textile raw materials and products registered US$ 123.26 billion in the first half of 2013, indicating an increase of 12 percent compared to the corresponding period of the preceding year.
