Local economic depression combined with a drop in demand from international markets has led to a 23.2 per cent decline in Taiwan's textile exports in May, down to 1.195bn. According to the latest customs statistics, outbound garment shipments were hardest hit, falling 24.7 per cent on the previous year to reach $143m.
