Textile sales tumbled down by 13.5 percent and came to Kc17.7bn, whereas sales of clothing items dropped to Kc3.7bn, recording a plunge of 16.7 percent. This fall in sales follows a fall in the whole economy.

Results for any month in the first half of the current year were not as worse as the results for December 2008, which may reflect stabilization in the sector, said the association.
