WHERE TO IMPORT CLOTHING FROM?

The most popular markets to import clothing from are China, India, Thailand and Indonesia. However Vietnam and Bangladesh are the fastest growing import markets for clothing.

The cost to import clothing, textiles and footwear from some ASEAN countries* will soon drop as the Australian Government reduces import tariffs to less than 5%, in line with the Free Trade Agreements. This means that some ASEAN countries may soon be cheaper than China, with that country’s rising labour and materials costs.

For importers it means there are new opportunities to source quality, low cost clothing and effectively compete in the local market. For instance, Vietnam is a major exporter of textiles to the US, but hardly exports to Australia. This will soon change as Australian buyers recognise the high quality and diversity of the Vietnamese textile industry.

*ASEAN countries include Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam
