Last year, apparel industry witnessed significant surge in exports of children's wear.

In 2006, industry exported 67.7 million units of kid's wear worth US $131.8 million, up 22 percent over 2005.

During this period, US imported 40.9 million units, generating revenue of $91.8 million and accounting for 61 percent of total exports turnover.

The Industrial Ministry reported that major hard currency earners will include crude oil, garments, textile and leather shoes in 2007.
