Pham Xuan Hong, Head, HCMC Association of Garment, Textile, Embroidery and
Knitting (AGTEK), the effect of the pandemic has reached industrial parks in
HCMC and if the workers in the firms get affected, the work will have to be
stopped and fulfilment of the orders will also slow down.
As per Le Tien
Tuong, chairman, Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group
(Vinatex), the risk of Covid-19 breaking out in the garment and textile
factories is higher because these factories are labour-intensive and the
workers are concentrated in certain places.
According to the
reports, no affiliates in Vinatex were found affected by the Covid-19 infection
during the first three waves but the ongoing fourth wave has caused some
enterprises in the northern province of Bac Ninh and the central city of Da
Nang, to be affected by the virus. As per the chairman of Vinatex, the workers
in the Vinatex affiliates have been affected by the virus for the first time in
last 18 months due to which the production had to be stopped and the group has
to face losses. He added, if the production is stopped, delivery of the goods
will be delayed causing further losses.
