Cambodia’s clothing exports for the first quarter of 2014 grew by 11% year-on-year, according to the latest figures from the Ministry of Commerce, indicating a possible recovery from a difficult 2014.

The value of garment exports amounted to US$1.71bn in the first three months of the year, up from US$1.54bn during the same period in 2014, according to Camcontrol, the Ministry’s import-export inspection unit.

At US$5.75bn, clothing accounted for 80% of all exports last year, and accounted for around a third of the country’s gross domestic product.
