Data from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology show the country’s garment manufacturers produced 3.4bn pieces in January to February this year, representing a year-on-year increase of 38.4%.

The cumulative operating income of 12,438 major garment firms surveyed by the Ministry over the two months amounted to CNY179.2bn (US$27.4bn), rising 21.4% on last year.

China’s total retail sales of consumer goods totalled CNY6.97bn, a year-on-year increase of 33.8%, while online clothing sales jumped 44.3%. The country’s garment and garment accessories exports totalled U$24.1bn, an increase of 50% on last year.

The Ministry said China’s apparel industry showed a recovery growth trend during January to February, with production and efficiency “rebounding significantly”, and domestic sales and exports achieving rapid growth. However, they are yet to reach pre-pandemic levels.
