In February alone, Vietnam's textile and garment export declined 6.4 per cent year on year to US$2.1 billion amid impacts of the latest wave of new Covid-19 cases in the country.
Over the two-month period, local garment enterprises have been constantly receiving new orders, according to the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association.
The growth in new orders was due to the recovery of global demand following the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines around the world, said the association.
In 2020, Vietnam recorded an export turnover of roughly US$29.5 billion from textile and garment products, down 10.2 per cent from 2019, according to the statistics office.
Its largest export markets included China, Japan, the European Union, South Korea and the United States. - Xinhua
