Vietnam targets 44 billion USD in textile, apparel export turnover in 2024: VITAS 

 Wednesday, November 29,2023

AsemconnectVietnam - Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS) has set a target of earning 44 billion USD from textile and apparel exports in 2024 as positive changes have seen from the last quarter of this year.

Speaking at a recent press conference, VITAS Chairman Vu Duc Giang said that this year, the export revenue is estimated to top 40 billion USD, about 9.2% less than that of last year.
“Amid the gloomy landscape as a result of the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and large inventory due to falling demand, the achievement is considered a breakthrough demonstrating great efforts of the business community,” Giang said, adding that in 2023, Vietnamese textile and garment products entered 104 countries and territories – a record number.
According to VITAS, the US remained the biggest importer of Vietnamese textile and apparel products with a turnover of over 11 billion USD by the end of September. It was followed by Japan with about 3 billion USD, the Republic of Korea 2.43 billion USD, and the EU 2.9 billion USD.
Among key markets, Vietnam’s exports to the EU failed to meet expectations with nine-month revenue dropping 13%.
Vietnamese producers have been making efforts to diversify products for export with 36 types of products.
Diversifying markets, products, customers, and partners is a way for Vietnam's textile and garment industry to reduce its reliance on large markets, Giang said, adding it is also an important measure for Vietnam to realise next year’s target.
According to VITAS, the garment industry will continue implementing measures for sustainable development with green production and greenhouse gas emission reduction.
Vietnam will need to focus on developing the fashion industry, building domestic brands and then making them globally known, he said.
