Garment sector grows another 13 pct: report

Cambodia's garment and footwear exports grew by 13 per cent year-on-year in the first quarter of 2016, Chinese news agency Xinhua said on Monday, citing a report by the Ministry of Industry and Handicraft.

Locally based manufacturers exported products worth $1.55 billion during the January-March period, up from $1.37 billion during the same period last year, the report said, adding that the major markets for the items were Europe, the United States and Canada.

Cambodia’s garment and footwear sector accounts for about 80 per cent of the country’s total exports.
