Clothing company Litex has slashed its output of lingerie on growing imports into its home market, the Czech Republic.

Litex's lingerie production has gone from about 30 per cent of its total output to about 20 per cent, now that the country is part of the EU, freeing up access to its market.

Litex, which is based in Litomysl, eastern Bohemia, exports about 30 per cent of its total output and about 5.0 per cent of its lingerie production.
