Experts at the recently held conference in the Ho Chi Minh City noted that denim production is attracting more investors in Vietnam, but eco-friendly production is essential to protect the environment. Denim products account for around 10-20 per cent of Vietnam’s textile and garment product exports now.
The conference was part of Denims and Jeans Vietnam, an international exhibition on textiles, garment sand machinery organised by the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association, Denimsandjeans.com and other organisations on June 12-13.
Both domestic and foreign companies in the denim production sector in Vietnam are investing in advanced manufacturing chains and technologies. However, the number of domestic businesses in this sector supplying materials for garments is still limited.
Nguyen Dinh Truong, Deputy Standing Chairman of the association noted that considering the trend toward sustainable development, consumers were keen for green production and environment-friendly products.
