The exports of made-up textile articles, including home textiles, recorded a growth of 7 percent year-on-year, in January 2014.
 
The exports of textile raw materials from Portugal increased by 10 percent year-on-year, of which, the exports of synthetic or man-made fibres grew 19 percent, of special and tufted fabrics by about 17 percent, and of impregnated, coated or covered and other textiles for technical textiles by 11 percent, during the month.
