In 2010, the production value of the textile chain was US$60.5bn, equivalent to 5.5% of the total production value of the manufacturing industry. However, the sector is especially important as an employer. In 2010, companies producing basic textiles and made-up articles employed nearly 1.7m people or 16.4% of total employment in the manufacturing industry. This share has only slightly diminished since 2004, when it was 16.9%.
There is a growing sense in Brazil, also at government level, that the textile and apparel industry is a key sector for the country’s development. Actions against the imports of textile goods from competitors that do not abide by international trade rules will be enhanced. The “Bigger Brazil” plan will back the competitiveness of the sector, while Texbrasil (the Brazilian fashion industry export programme sponsored by both the industry and the government) enthusiastically continues its long-term effort to promote Brazilian fashion worldwide.
