The figures depict a growth of 8.8 and 23.1 percent respectively, in terms of volume and value against similar period last year.

During the month, Taiwan remained the biggest supplier of the fibres, followed by China and Thailand.

Taiwanese suppliers shipped 17,200 tons to Vietnam for $29.7 million, up by 11.7 and 23.3 percent respectively over corresponding period 2007.

Fibre sourced from China came up to 4,800 tons, totaled $9.6 million, down 5.7 percent in volume, but a growth of 7.2 percent can be observed in terms of value compared to December 2007. The reason behind such increase can be attributed to rise in prices during this period.
