The textile and apparel industry was defined as a field with one of the highest growth rates over the next 12 years. It’s expected the business will grow by 14 percent over the next two years and a further 10 percent up to 2030. Speaking at the 4th Vietnam Textile Summit 2018 held in Hanoi on June 27, Dr. Tran Du Lich said he believed the future would be bright. “Garment and textile is a key economic sector in terms of employment creation and contribution to exports. It creates 20 per cent of jobs in Vietnamese industry,” said Lich.
