The export turnover of textiles and garments in January was estimated at US$2.6 billion, up 3.3 percent.
As for the footwear sector, leather and related-products increased by 20.8 percent with footwear output hitting 21.9 million pairs in the first month of the year, up 3 percent over the same period last year.
According to analysis from the Ministry of Industry and Trade, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, supply chains are being re-established creating new opportunities for Vietnamese footwear enterprises to integrate in the global supply chain. Especially, FDI enterprises will continue to invest in and expand their production activities, helping the Vietnam’s footwear industry maintain export growth momentum in the upcoming time.
