As the demand graph of consumer goods move up during the past 10 months of the ongoing fiscal, imports of cheap Chinese products witness a sharp rise.

An increase in the import of garment and textiles and shoes from China has been observed recently.

Experts are of the opinion made-in-China products are more attractive and cost only half of those manufactured inland. Most of the consumers prefer buying low quality product because of their lower prices.

Cheap textile and apparel products imported from China is hurting Vietnamese manufacturer, when the industry is struggling to improve competitiveness in the face of declining exports.

At some market places Chinese garments and textiles provide around 20 percent of the total turnover.

Showing concern over the prevailing situation, market analysts suggest that manufacturers need to develop flexibility to react quickly to changes in the market; and Government should create a technical tariff barrier to protect domestic enterprises in a way that does not violate the regulations against protectionism.
