Agricultural product exports near US$34 billion

The Trade Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade on November 13 held several activities for market connection and investment cooperation for more than 450 enterprises from 29 cities and provinces in Vietnam and 23 countries and territories in the world in Ho Chi Minh City.
Since the beginning of this year, export turnover of agro-aquatic products reached roughly US$34 billion, an increase of 1.6 percent over the same period last year. Vietnamese agricultural exports declined at Chinese market but increased heavily at choosy market such as the US, the EU, Japan and South Korea.

Mr. Andreas Krey, general director of Germany’s Thuringia State Development Office, emphasized that German consumers in particular and global consumers in general are increasingly fond of Vietnamese products thanks to improving quality. Vietnamese enterprises only need to meet technical barriers about food safety, quality and packing then the opportunity to enter deeply into global market will be extremely great.
