Of which, added value of textile sector increased by 9.9 percent year on year, in the first four months of 2011. Among main products, yarn output achieved 8.46 million tons, an increase of 10.6 percent, fabric production completed 17.9 billion meters, up 15.7 percent and clothing output reached 7.37 billion pieces, a rise of 13.5 percent year on year.

From a price perspective, production of bulk agricultural and commodity products maintained steady growth. However, domestic cotton price declined rapidly.

In April, domestic cotton price index (328) stood at 26,927 Yuan / ton, an increase of 63.6 percent year on year, but down 3,201 Yuan / ton compared with the previous month.

Many SMEs in the textile goods industry mainly rely on international market and are very sensitive to the appreciation of the Renminbi and rise of interest rates.

Some export-oriented SMEs in textile industry are feeling the heat of both and are on the edge of profit loss.

Several provinces have increased minimum wages in the past few months, due to which incomes have increased, in particular, the income of rural residents. Growth rate of added value of textile sector is expected to stabilize at around 14 percent in the first half this year.
