Vietnam garment and textile export turnover witnessed 1.2 percent growth in the month of January over the same month last year to reach US$1.9 billion, according to Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association.

The production output of garment and textile products such as fabric and clothes have been on the rise compared to the same period last year as many businesses have got orders to produce until the end of the first quarter this year and even the second quarter to some.

However, 60 percent of the export turnover has been undertaken by Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) companies, Vietnamese firms have occupied only 40 percent.

Mr. Le Quang Hung, chairman of Saigon Garment Manufacturing Trading Joint Stock Company, said that FDI companies held US$14 billion of the US$21 billion export turnover in 2014.

Only US$6 billion went to Vietnamese firms. Of these 80 percent came from processed goods, 20 percent was fully made by local companies and exported under FOB (Free on Board) term, meaning Vietnam just earned only US$1.2 billion.
