The garment-textile sector, on the contrary, maintained operation for taking actions in a timely manner. It raked in 24.9 million USD from exports in the first five months of the year, making up 30 percent of the province’s export value.

The sector’s major export markets in the period were the Republic of Korea, the US and Japan. Those markets are forecast to produce stable orders in the latter half of the year, therefore export revenues will see few fluctuations. 

Plastic products, accounting for 25 percent of the provincial export values, also have stable export markets.

Some mining companies have seen orders come back again after a period of interruptions.

Thanks to efforts by local businesses, export turnover of the province hit 16.8 million USD in May alone, up 5.7 percent against the previous month and surging 76 percent year on year.
