The US remained the largest export market for Vietnamese garment and textiles, accounting for 8.4% of the country’s market share.

This year’s exports to the highly lucrative market is forecast to explode 13% to US$11 billion over a year earlier.

Meanwhile, the EU continues to be a key market for Vietnamese garment and textiles in the time ahead after the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) comes into effect.
