Garment-textile export turnover was estimated at 14.5 billion USD in January-May 2019.

VITAS has set the industry’s export turnover target this year at 40 billion USD, a 10.8 percent year-on-year increase from 2018.

In January-May, fruit and vegetable exports stood at 1.83 billion USD, a year-on-year increase of 10.3 percent.

China was the top fruit and vegetable export market, accounting for 74.26 percent of market share, followed by the US at 3.16 percent, the Republic of Korea with 3.03 percent and Japan’s 2.53 percent.

The fruit and vegetable sector aims to gross nearly 4.2 billion USD in export turnover in 2019.

To realise this goal, the sector will expand fruit growing area to one million hectares and develop five main fruits in southern localities, namely dragon fruit, mango, durian, rambutan and longan, according to the Department of Crop Production under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The two industries have ample opportunities to expand their markets under the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which came into effect in January.

FSC Forest Management Certification: "The key" to timber export
(BGO) - Bac Giang has nearly 120,000 hectares of production forest land, annually producing more than 600,000 cu.m of wood of all kinds. The timber is mainly exported to countries in the region but not to the US and European markets, so its value is low. The reason is that Bac Giang's forest has not yet got the Stewardship Council (FSC) Forest Management Certification. Increasing the area of forest granted this type of certification is still a difficult problem for the local forestry sector.
