The southern province of Dong Nai currently has 420 enterprises specialising on producing accessories and spare parts for garments & textiles, mechanics and other industries, according to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade.
Of the total, as many as 82 facilities produce materials for garment, textile and footwear production, applying advanced technology and attracting 43,000 workers, reported the department.
However, according to the department, these firms do not meet the demand for material for the apparel and footwear sectors, forcing the sector to import large numbers of materials to ensure production.
Recently, the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group commenced construction on a 500 billion VND (23.4 million USD) fibre factory in the province. The facility is scheduled to become operational in January 2016, providing nearly 5,000 tonnes of high-quality fibre for garment and textile factories each year.
Meanwhile, 334 enterprises producing mechanical accessories and spare parts including 60 automobile and motorcycle spare parts production facilities. Other firms are working on providing material for plastic and other sectors, it said.
The facilities, with outdated technology and low competitiveness, have failed to meet the demand of their customers, especially in multinational enterprises.-VNA
