World’s largest marketer of basic apparel to expand operation in Vietnam

HanesBrands Vietnam, one of the biggest subsidiaries of the world's largest marketer of basic apparel, plans to increase the number of its factories and expand the scale of production in Vietnam, the US-based group's Vice President Jerry Cook has said.

Cook told Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung last week that HanesBrands Vietnam is exporting apparel products, mainly bras, panties, underwear, socks and T-shirt, to the US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Australia and China. HanesBrands is running seven plants in Vietnam with nearly 12,000 workers, producing 26 percent of the group's total global output. Last year, HanesBrands Vietnam's export revenue was estimated at 400 million USD.
