Since dawn of the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam has become well-known to the world for its success in controlling the epidemic and maintaining stable production to meet market demand. It is forecasted that there will be a great opportunity for Vietnam’s garment and textile industry in 2021. However, there still exist many difficulties.
According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, in the first quarter of 2021, the textile and garment industry achieved better results than the same period in 2020. Although the production volume and prices of products have not recovered, there have been positive signals. Export turnover of textiles and garments in the first quarter of 2021 is estimated at 7.2 billion USD (up 1.1% over the same period); export turnover of fibers and textile yarns of all kinds increased by 31%; export turnover of drapery and other technical fabrics increased by 8.8%.
Vu Duc Giang, Chairman of the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (Vitas), said that the textile and garment industry employs 3 million workers, contributing to ensuring social security and making an important contribution to export turnover. With export turnover in the first months of the year achieving such positive results, it is expected that exports will reach 40 billion USD this year.
Although the industry has recovered, textile and garment companies have encountered many difficulties related to import and export taxes.
