The textile and garment industry is one of the important sectors of Vietnamâ€™s economy and it is also an industry that has high demand of water, especially for fabric processing and dyeing.
In order to improve the water management and use of the sector, some research results indicate that it is necessary to increase investment in wastewater treatment, and remove difficulties for factories and industrial parks, which do not have enough financial sources for wastewater treatment equipment and technologies.
According to VITAS, Vietnam ranks the 4th among textile exporting countries in the world, after China, India and Bangladesh.

Foreign direct investment (FDI) poured into the sector hit US$2.8 billion, lifting the accumulated FDI in the industry to US$17.5 billion, with the Republic of Korea; Japan, and China being the biggest investors.
The Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) launched a water risk report for Vietnamâ€™s textile and garment industry and a tool for assessing water risks in the Mekong region in Ho Chi Minh City on November 28.
