The textile industry’s export turnover reached an estimated $24.76 billion in the first 10 months of this year, down 9.3 percent compared to the same period last year, according to statistics from the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
Textile enterprises need to take measures, as well as adjust their production activities and business forms to suit the fluctuations of the market due to the severe impacts posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the ministry said.
Attention should also paid to exploiting the domestic market and forming production chains meeting regulations of origin stated in free trade agreements that Vietnam signed with partners, it noted.
Addressing a recent working session to seek solutions to difficulties facing the industry amid the health crisis, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc suggested the sector strengthen application of digital technologies and make effective use of FTAs.
The Government leader also emphasised the need to develop modern and environmentally friendly industrial parks serving the textile and garment industry, and application of circular economy.
