NA Chairman requests improvement in added value of Viet Nam’s apparel products
National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue on February 8 urged the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex) to pay more attention to building the Vietnamese brand and increasing the added value of the country’s garment and textile products.
Speaking at a working session with Vinatex leaders, Hue said that the garment industry has overcome difficulties and challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and was assessed as the best buying geography among the 27 leading apparel producing nations and territories in 2021.
Gaining these achievements, Vinatex has promoted its core and leading role, he affirmed.
The leader advised the group to learn from lessons of the past two years of the COVID-19 outbreak, grasp opportunities and trends in changing supply chains and the relationship in the textile and garment supply chain, and focus more on the domestic market of nearly 100 million consumers.
Noting that the garment and textile industry always has an important role to play in the economy and economic recovery in 2022-2023, the NA Chairman proposed the Government, ministries and sectors direct the early implementation of support packages.
Meanwhile, Vinatex was asked to soon address its labour shortage and restructure its production to ensure the on-time completion of orders with the highest possible quality.
He also suggested the Government, the Prime Minister, relevant ministries and sectors promptly carry out the economic recovery and development programmes in order to help businesses in general, and garment and textile enterprises and Vinatex in particular soon restore production; continue creating a favourable investment environment for businesses; and issue policies to support businesses in attracting more workers.
