Vietnamese garment and footwear markers are seeking new opportunities to approach small and medium-sized distributors in the US at a conference in Hanoi on April 11.
They are provided with up-to-date market information and the consumption trend in the US to cater to local consumer tastes.
In recent years, the US has been the main export market for Vietnam’s textile and footwear sector. Last year, export turnover reached US$6.87 billion for textiles and US$2.37 billion for footwear. These figures represent 43.4 and 30.2 percent of each sector’s total export turnover, respectively.
A conference is being held on April 11 in Hanoi by the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (Vitas) and the Vietnam Leather and Footwear Association (Lefaso).
The event coincides with a visit by Jessie Zhang, Business Development Manager of Tiger Trade, who is in charge of foreign customers at the US’ Sourcing at MAGIC trade show.
