Export turnover reached only US$134.6 billion during the last ten months, making it difficult to attain this year’s target of US$165 billion, reported the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The export turnover must average US$15.2 billion a month in the rest of this year to obtain the target, which deputy minister Tran Anh Tuan said a very difficult mission to the ministry. It has urged authorized agencies to implement more drastic measures to boost exports in the rest two months.
For the last ten months, manufacturing and processing exports grew 17.6 percent over the same period last year, significantly contributing to common turnover growth.
Foreign direct investment sector posted high growth rate and continued to be the main contributor to Vietnam’s export growth.
