Cambodia’s footwear sector will provide more opportunities for investment and production than the garment sector due to significant growth over the last five years, said an International Labour Organisation (ILO) research bulletin on Cambodia’s garment, textile, and footwear (GTF) industry.
The bulletin said the footwear sector has grown more rapidly than the garment sector in recent years, adding Cambodia to the list of top 10 footwear export countries in 2016 for the first time.
Between 2013 and last year, it said, the footwear sector’s share in Cambodia’s total GTF export value has grown by 4.4 percentage points, while the garment sector’s share has decreased by almost 10 percentage points.
