Apr '06

Among Thailand's footwear exports to the US ranked clocked highest figures at $42.47 million, up 24.43 percent over the previous year's 20.9 percent, the statement added.

During the period, the US imported from Thailand goods from several categories that all set high - stable growth, including the knitting materials – capped shoes (up 72.44 percent at $4.07 million), plastic shoes (up 31.44 percent worth $12.92 million).

Whereas, exports of leather capped - shoes from Thailand also surged sharply to the US, they did so specially for the EU region despite the EC's anti-dumping duties that were applied to similar products from China as well as Vietnam.

In January-February, total exports revenue for leather capped shoes generated revenues worth $35 million that recorded a year-on-year rise of 18.13 percent.

Exports to Italy (went up 131.91 percent at $1.01 million), Belgium (up 32.38 percent, at $12.55 million), France (up 16.2 percent, $2.8 million) grew accordingly.

It is also conveyed that Thai footwear exports turnover soared solidly in other markets like Japan, Mexico, India and Arab Nations.
