With over 800,000 people employed by an estimated 1000 companies, the apparel sector is the largest industrial employer within Vietnam. It is also the country’s second largest export industry – amounting to US$1.7 billion – coming in behind oil (US$ 2 billion), and ahead of footwear (US$1.4 billion) and rice (US$1.035 billion). Sixty-one per cent of the exported apparel goes to the quota-free markets such as Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan; while the remaining 39 per cent goes to Canada and the EU.
