The textile and garment industry is one of Vietnam’s key economic sectors. According to the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS), this sector would likely to grow at an average rate of 11.5% annually from now till 2020.
Mr Le Tien Truong, General Director of VINATEX, stated that, in 2016, the total export turnover of the whole industry reached $28.5 billion (all figures in USD), up 5.2% compared to 2015, of which the export value of textiles and garments reached $23.6 billion, up 3.3%; export of fiber is estimated at $2.9 billion, up 14.1%..., ranked as one of the five biggest exporters in the world.
A HUGE VOID IN TEXTILE PRODUCTION AND DYYING MARKET
Figures supplied by VITAS show that 70% of more than 3,700 textile factories in the country make apparel; only 6% produce yarn, 17% make fabric, and 4% are dye houses (Source: 2016 ITA Technical Textiles Top Markets Report). There is a huge void in textile production and dye chemicals. As Vietnam’s technical textile industry continues to evolve, it will offer huge growth potential for overseas exporters and investors.
ESTABLISHING INDUSTRIAL ZONES: A DEVELOPMENTAL STRATEGY
Vietnam is currently in the process of modernizing its industrial production. One of the country’s key strategies is to create a number of industrial zones as a means of facilitating industrial investment. As at September 2016, there were 324 industrial zones set up nationwide, with 220 already in operation. These industrial zones, coupled with 16 economic zones recently set up in the country, have together attracted foreign investment amounting to some US$150 billion by mid-2016 (in terms of registered capital).
