GENEVA — Global apparel production in the second quarter increased 3.7 percent and grew 4 percent for textiles compared with the same period last year.
The gains were led by developing economies, which were up 8.9 percent for apparel and 6.3 percent for textiles in the quarter, while output in industrialized nations declined 7.4 percent for apparel and 1.4 percent in textiles, a United Nations report said.
