Body Paragraph 1 (1999-2000):

Looking in more detail, in 1999 Myanmar exported approximately 5 million dollars of clothing compared to about 450 million dollars for Colombia and 575 million for Japan. However, from 1999 to 2000 Myanmar clothing exports skyrocketed, surpassing both countries for a total of 800 million dollars’ worth. The relatively small gap between Japan and Colombia, on the other hand, narrowed even further with both countries exporting around 530 million dollars of clothes in 2000.

Body Paragraph 2 (2000-2003):

From 2000, Myanmar clothing exports continued to increase, reaching a peak value of 920 million dollars in 2001 before plummeting and then recovering slightly in 2003 for a final value of 400 million, the lowest among the three countries. Colombia, having surpassed Japan in the period from 2000 to 2001, ended up with the highest total exports in 2003 at 600 million dollars.
