Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnam took the lead in importing clothes from the Republic of Korea (RoK) in 2015 with value at 382 million USD, an increase of 132.5 percent compared with five years ago.

This is according to the latest statistics released by the Korean Customs Service (KCS).

China is at second place with import turnover of 372 million USD.

According to KCS's analysis, Vietnam's import turnover has rapidly increased because the quantity of clothing accessories exported to RoK businesses' factories in Vietnam is going up.

The information, quoted by the Korean Broadcasting System, revealed that the country's export turnover of clothes reached 1.94 billion USD, 4.5 percent lower than the previous year.-VNA
