US consumes half of Vietnamese textile, garment exports
Sep '17
Vietnam's textile and garment export turnover in 2017 will be an estimated $30.5 billion, of which the US market will account for about half, Vu Duc Giang, chairman of the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS), said recently. For its spinning industry, the country is also importing US cotton, accounting for up to 60 per cent of its total demand.

In the first eight months of this year, textiles and garments exports grew steadily to $19.8 billion, with export value increasing by 9.9 per cent over the value during the same period last year. Vietnam’s cotton imports surged over the past ten years from 150,000 tonnes in 2005 to approximately 1.2 million tonnes in 2016, according to VITAS.

Vietnam is using more raw cotton from the US markets as in the last few years as its cotton cultivation areas have narrowed down to just 0.04 per cent of the total demand and US cotton contains less impurities, according to a report in a Vietnamese daily.

American companies, after participating in the Cotton Day 2017 organized by VITAS and the US Cotton Council International (CCI) in Ho Chi Minh City in mid-September, have recommended to the US Government to establish cotton-bonded warehouses in Ho Chi Minh City and Hai Phong to help create better opportunities for Vietnamese spinners to access US cotton products, while shortening buying times and reducing financial pressure.

To help US customers recognise high-quality Vietnamese products, the CCI granted licences to 12 Vietnamese businesses to use the COTTON USA label. (DS)
