Vietnam Apparel Plants Struggle as China Lockdowns Hit Supplies

Vietnam’s clothes and shoe factories are struggling to meet orders as supplies of Chinese material used to make everything from sneakers to pants are drying up amid China’s Covid-19 lockdowns. 

“Every apparel factory is facing a material shortage problem now,” said Pham Xuan Hong, chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City Garment, Textile Embroidery Knitting Association. “It hurts our production and exports and is delaying our deliveries to clients.”
