June 27, 2008 (Hong Kong)

The Hong Kong garment and footwear industry enjoyed a first-hand look at business and investment opportunities in Vietnam and Cambodia earlier this month during a five-day trip organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).

The Hong Kong Garment and Footwear Partnership Mission to Vietnam and Cambodia, 5-9 May, included 29 delegates from the garment industry and 14 from the footwear industry.

Ralph Chow, Director of Product Promotion at the HKTDC, and one of the mission leaders, said the visit was organised to help Hong Kong garment and shoe manufacturers "explore the possibility of relocating their factories to Vietnam or Cambodia."

Garment delegates visited two clothing factories in Vietnam and three in Cambodia. These included Vietnam's biggest garment manufacturer, Thanh Cong Textile Garment Co, which boasts 5,000 employees, and Hong Kong company Tack Fat Garment (Cambodia) Ltd, Cambodia's largest foreign investor and employer.

Footwear delegates visited two factories in Vietnam and two in Cambodia, including a Taiwanese company, a Hong Kong factory and a mainland operation.
