According to VCCI-HCM, two-way trade turnover between Vietnam and Taiwan exceeded US$16.3 billion last year, up 7 percent compared to the previous year.
In January this year alone, two-way trade turnover between the two sides already reached $1.5 billion.
Vietnam mainly exports cell-phones, seafood products, footwear and garments to the Taiwanese market. Meanwhile, Taiwan usually has great demand for foodstuffs and goods to serve tourists and its people. Therefore, it is a potential market for agro-forestry-aquatic products of Vietnam.
