Vietnam's textile and clothing exports increased by over 150% between 2010 and 2016—making Vietnam the world's fifth largest exporter of textiles and clothing. Vietnam's textile and clothing industry is the country's principal source of foreign exchange earnings, and represents its predominant manufacturing activity. Consequently, the Vietnamese government places a high priority on the industry by providing strong support and measures to encourage investment. Looking ahead, the government is keen to build on the success of the industry, and has established a number of ambitious targets as it pursues economic policies aimed at endowing Vietnam with developed nation status by 2020.
