The eight month number was a year on year increase of 20 percent. In July, the export turnover hit US$2.14 billion.
This year, the textile and garment export is targeted at 12 percent growth rate and expected to exceed US$20 billion turnover this year.
The textile and garment exports have strongly grown thanks to opportunities from the under-negotiation Trans-Pacific Partnership and Vietnam - EU Free Trade Agreement, according to the association.
