Vietnam fruit and vegetable exports hit record 3.45 billion dollarsAccording to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Vietnam earned a record of some 3.45 billion US dollars from fruit and vegetable exports in 2017. This was a rise of 40.5 percent compared to last year. In December alone, fruit and vegetable exports were estimated at 276 million dollars.
The Ministry reported that China, Japan, the US and the Republic of Korea were the biggest importers of Vietnamese fruits and vegetables between January and November. The markets with soaring imports from Vietnam were Japan (70.6 percent), the United Arab Emirates (57.4 percent), and China (54.9 percent).
The Ministry called 2017 ‘a bumper year’ for Vietnamese fruits with surging exports and entrances into many demanding markets. Vietnamplus.vn reported on Minister Nguyen Xuan Cuong saying there remains huge potential for Vietnamese fruits and vegetables in the global market. To tap this potential however, the country needs to pay more attention to processing, as this is still a weak point at present.
