Likert-scale was used to assess the respondents' answers and the findings were analyzed by using Microsoft Excel. The samples encompassed 60.46% of export garment enterprises and 39.54% of domestic garment enterprises. The results clarified that quality was the highest priority while the cost was minimal. At the same time, the results showed that domestic garment enterprises (Group B) require more awareness in the implementation of competitive dimensions.
