Summary

Table of Contents

This report is aimed as a strategic tool for both buyers and suppliers to assess and compare the advantages and challenges of sourcing and manufacturing apparel garments in the Southeast Asian countries of Cambodia, Vietnam and Myanmar.


Cambodia’s garment industry has a huge impact on its population and makes up 80% of its exports. This is one of the most important sectors for the country as it's still viewed as a low cost destination in Southeast Asia. Will it be able to retain its advantage with the rising competition from its neighbouring countries?


Vietnam is one of the top exporters of apparel globally and has currently become more interesting since signing the TPP agreement with the US and after having concluded trade negotiations with the EU on the free trade agreement EVFTA (EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement). How will this impact trade patterns and exports?


With increasing investments and strategic trade agreements, Myanmar has only recently opened to international trade and has attracted the attention of several international brands as well as governments. What makes Myanmar so attractive and how will Myanmar impact trade patterns in the next five years?


These are some of the key questions discussed in this strategic sourcing review.


The report is categorised into four key parts:


Part 1: Background research into the three countries. Introducing the value chain approach that our author has taken in developing the report's 15-point sourcing criteria. We have ranked each country using the consistent set of criteria and in addition to just-style’s research on the three countries, a sample of senior executives from a cross-section of the fashion industry were asked for their sourcing perceptions on each of the countries.


Part 2: An overview of each country and comparison of their competitiveness based on buyer preferences and perceptions across the 15-point sourcing criteria. Key points to look out for in the next five years.


Part 3: Analysis of the countries from buyer and supplier perspectives, based on costs and comparisons at the manufacturing and investor level.


Part 4: Current and future sourcing scenarios based on vendor categorisation.

1. Ability to provide FOB
2. Price
3. Tariffs advantages
