According to the Chamber, the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement, once effective, will allow Vietnam to ship its garment-textile products to more markets, particularly the US.

Vietnam is the second biggest garment-textile supplier of the US, while Mexico is the sixth.

Statistics show that Vietnam shipped to the US USD 11 billion worth of garment-textile products last year.

In the first half this year, the figure hit USD 4.29 billion, up 5.93 percent from the same period last year.
