Vietnam’s young and growing labour force is not expected to incur inflationary pressures with growth, as over half of the population is under 30. The country has ample, natural resources allowing for a local content of up to 90% on exported garments. Suppliers are mostly vertically integrated manufactures experienced at producing complicated to manufacture items, assuring high quality and faster lead times compared to less integrated manufacturing bases relying on imported materials.
Most fabrics are sourced locally in Vietnam, giving Melcosa Vietnam the advantage of being able to deliver very fast repeat lead times that are superior to other buying offices that imports fabrics. Obtaining quality fabrics locally also strengthens the ties between Melcosa and the fabric vendors, providing Melcosa Vietnam with more competitive prices and greater flexibility. Melcosa can also control inspect all fabrics at the source of production and eliminate problems inherent with garment making before goods are shipped.
