Even in the starting of the 2007, industry was only able to export apparel worth $2.59 million, a drop 54 percent.

This trend is witnessed in the market since US provided duty-free market access to Sub-Saharan African and Caribbean competitors.

However, latest problem faced by industry is labour uncertainties, lack of support by Government and absence of industry favorable policies.

Decline of 59 percent in April last year was the second highest in both 2006 and 2007.
