Despite the returning growth, enterprises are worried for the time ahead due to severe shortage of purchase orders.

In the meantime, enterprises’ ‘health’ is not as normal as when there is no Covid-19. They, especially small and medium enterprises, are now vulnerable. According to apparel society of Binh Duong Province, up to date, long-term purchase orders are very rare although masks and protective gears have strongly declined in prices and increased in supply to the world.
