(VOV) - Garment and textile exports are estimated to have earned US$6.6 billion in the first half of 2012, continuing to top the list of national exports.
Garment producers faces difficulty in expanding markets
The figure was released by Le Tien Truong, Deputy General Director of the Vietnam Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex) in a meeting in Hanoi on June 20 to review the sector’s operations.
Accordingly, the sector has maintained a stable growth rate in big import markets such as the US, EU and Japan.
Many exporters have achieved growth rates of more than 12 percent compared to the same period last year, including Phong Phu, Viet Tien, Hoa Tho, May 10 and Duc Giang garment companies.
Truong said Vinatex is currently completing equitisation and new market expansion to achieve its own target of US$2.6 billion.
The garment sector aims to rake in US$18 billion from exports this year.
