Textile exports to hit US$28.5 billion in 2016

Textile exports to hit US$28.5 billion in 2016

According to the association, the industry’s largest export market in 2016 remains China, which accounts for more than half of the industry’s export value.

Exports to the US this year are also estimated at US$11.4 billion, up 4% against last year.

The EU, Japan, India, Brazil, Russia and Canada were also large importers of Vietnam’s textiles and garments in 2016, the association reported.

The association attributed the low export turnover to a lack of export orders in 2016 due to fierce competition from foreign textile and garment producers while global demand declined.

Hoang Ve Dung, Chairman of the Duc Giang Garment and Textile Corporation, said obtaining orders had become more complicated, demanding higher quality and moving forward delivery deadlines.

Nguyen Xuan Duong, Chairman of the Hung Yen Garment Joint Stock Corporation, said that importers had asked his company to lower selling prices by 18-20% and even 30%. However, several still found partners who were less expensive in other countries.

Increasing production costs, limited orders and pressure by exporters to reduce selling prices have placed a burden on the corporation, Duong said.

Experts said that the textile and garment sector would continue facing challenges in 2017 due to fierce competition from other major exporters—including China, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan—while global demand is forecast to slow down.

Le Tien Truong, General Director of the National Garment and Textile Group (Vinatex), said textile and garment exports to the US and the EU will also see negative developments as consequences of Brexit and US President-elect Donald Trump’s opposition to the TPP trade pact.

Therefore, the sector anticipates an export growth rate of just 5-7% next year, if no appropriate policies are enacted, Truong said.

Vitas Chairman Vu Duc Giang said that Vitas had made several proposals to the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) to support local industry, including strengthening the management of both domestic and foreign investment projects in the industry and reviewing policies on minimum wage increases and working hours.

The association also asked for adjustments to the sector’s development and assistance in human resources training.

In addition, Vitas proposed that the MoIT review and revise legal documents causing difficulties for garment and textile businesses.
