Textiles and garment
Textiles and garment is one of Viet Nam's most important export sectors. With over 2 million workers, about a quarter of all industrial employment, the textiles and clothing industry represents a key source of industrial employment, especially for women, and is a leading industry for overall growth and industrialization. Although Viet Nam faces discriminatory market access conditions in some markets, its export performance in this sector has been impressive. Viet Nam's exports of clothing are almost entirely in the form of subcontracts to foreign firms.
