Textile exports to China growing

Textile exports to China growing

HCM CITY — Though Viet Nam remains a big importer of textile feedstock and accessories from China, its rising exports to China is a promising sign, according to the Viet Nam National Textile and Garment Group.

Customs data shows imports from China in 2017 were high at US$9 billion, or 42.7 per cent of all textile-related imports, and 12 per cent higher than in 2016.

Viet Nam often imports raw materials also from South Korea and Taiwan. South Korean products cost a fourth of Chinese products while Taiwanese products cost a fifth.

Last year, Viet Nam’s imports from China included over $6 billion worth of silk, $2 billion worth of leather and $800 million worth of threads.

However, according to the Viet Nam Textile & Apparel Association (Vitas), textile exports to China have been rising steadily, going up from $2.2 billion in 2015 to $3.2 billion last year. Vitas expects the figure to continue rising.

Vitas said China’s imports of Vietnamese textile products are not taxed because of the ASEAN – China Free Trade Area while imports from countries such as India and Pakistan incur a 3–5 per cent tax.

China is one of Viet Nam’s top five textile export markets.

Since that country has the world’s largest population, its market can be extensively segmented offering a great opportunity for local textile products.
