GENEVA — The value of global exports of textiles and apparel bounced back in 2010 and posted double-digit gains to reach a combined $602 billion, a report by the World Trade Organization said.
Global textile exports last year increased 19 percent to $251 billion and apparel expanded 11 percent to $351 billion, reflecting a sharp turnaround from the contractions of 18 percent and 13 percent posted respectively in 2009 as a result of the global recession.
