Vietnam in the global garment and textile value chain: impacts on firms and workers
AbstractOver the course of little more than a decade, Vietnam has become a significant exporter of garments to the EU and Japan, and now to the US too. Based on interviews with firms and buyers, and analysis of trade data, this paper traces how Vietnamese garment and textile firms are inserted into global garment and textile value chains. It considers ties between the Vietnamese garment and textiles industries. And, it reflects on how the nature of insertion into global value chains leads to differentiated gains for state owned and private enterprises, and for textile and garment workers.
