Footwear Exports Rising

Footwear is rushing out of Viet Nam as exports grow the European Union (EU), the U.S. and South America.

Vietnamese footwear exports to the EU have increased 15% year-on-year to reach US$1.17 billion in total 2006 turnover, making up about 50% of the country’s footwear exports so far this year.
In addition, Vietnamese footwear exporters have also been expanding in South America, especially in Argentina where revenues are up 178% year-on-year, amounting to about US$7.5 million.
The number of footwear exporters engaging in business with the U.S. and their turnover are also increasing considerably.
