Honduras maintained its apparel and textile export revenues in 2001, with latest data showing export revenues totalled US$2.34 billion, a slight drop from the US$2.36 billion recorded in 2000. The Honduran Maquila Association also reported that by December 2001, total employment in the sector fell to 110,000 jobs - down 15,000 from December 2000. A slowdown in the US economy is blamed.
