Exports of agro-forestry and seafood exports reached $23 billion, a year-on-year-rise of 13.5 percent.
At present, price of normal rice in the Mekong delta rose while high quality rice decreased because exporters need a big volume of normal rice to sell to Philippine; moreover, enterprises demanded for rice to fulfil pre-orders.
Meantime, price of pork still fell because of bulk supply while export showed negative sign. Additionally, price of rambutan in the Mekong delta province of Ben Tre dropped because export to China and Cambodia faced difficulties.
