Salvadoran Textile Exports Would Increase by 7%

The textile sector foresees a 7% increase in exports for 2009, despite the economic crisis.

Monday, March 2, 2009

La Prensa Grafica published on its website: "However, according to businessmen in the sector, this prospect for growth might not be met due to local bank credit restrictions, not necessarily because of the fall in demand in the North American country.
Jose Escobar, president of the Salvadoran Chamber of Textiles and Apparel (CAMTEX), says that the crisis has not affected orders for manufacturers in the country; rather, they have maintained themselves."
