The HCM City People’s Committee has asked the Ministry of Planning and Investment not to set up more large garment-textile industrial parks in the city.

The committee said the city’s existing industrial parks can accommodate all garment and textile firms and that large garment-textile industrial parks were no longer needed.

The city said that it was planning a centre for fashion design, garment-textile materials and accessories.

The city has 23 industrial parks and export processing zones, 17 of which operate in multiple sectors.

Most garment and textile firms are located in Tan Thuan and Linh Trung export processing zones, and Tan Thoi Hiep, Tan Binh, Tan Tao, Tay Bac Cu Chi and Dong Nam industrial parks.

Small-size textile and dyeing firms are based in Le Minh Xuan and Hiep Phuoc industrial parks. — VNS
