VIETNAM: Ho Chi Minh City Garment Machinery Upgrade
Up to 10,000 sewing machines and 4,000 pieces of textile equipment in Ho Chi Minh City will be upgraded later this month in an effort to help local garment and textile makers reduce production costs and push up exports. Nguyen Thien Nhan, vice chairman of the city's People's Committee, said the move is part of the city's project to spend VND3.6 billion ($237,000) on researching the manufacture of modern sewing, embroidering, knitting and dyeing machines this year. It will be carried out by the committee, the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, and Automation and Mechanical Engineering Institutes.
