During the two-month period, Vietnam also exported 113,454 tons of yarn worth $341.675 million, of which 48,460 tons of yarn was supplied to China, while Turkey imported 14,829 tons of yarn from the Southeast Asian country, the Customs data showed.
 
In 2013, Vietnam’s fabric and garment exports grew by 18.9 percent year-on-year to $17.946 billion.
 
Vietnamese firms are expecting an increase in export orders this year due to economic recovery in developed countries and prospects of the signing of the 12-nation trans-pacific partnership (TPP) agreement by June this year.
