The apparel and textile industry is definitely booming in Vietnam, but is the story same for denim in particular? The question is critical as despite being in Vietnam for some time, denim has not seen the growth that it deserved… Can the country handle ‘big volumes’, or will it overtake Bangladesh…? Team AO delves deep… Vietnam recorded a formidable yearly export turnover of US $ 31.2 billion (2017), but the projected export target for 2018 has undergone a revision from US $ 34 billion to US $ 35 billion.
Living up to its reputation by bringing together some of the best global denim players, the third edition of Denimsandjeans.com show turned out to be a bigger success than its previous two editions, witnessing ‘sustainability’, ‘innovation’ and ‘technology’ all around. About 40 exhibitors across several nations participated in the two-day event that was held at the beautiful Riverside Palace, Ho Chi Minh City.
