Border logjams means Vietnam’s produce needs increased domestic & new export markets

Vietnamese industry experts claim that the national government as well as businesses should have a sustainable strategy in place to both increase domestic sales and find other markets to consume farm products that cannot be exported to China. This follows from the fact that thousands of tons of agricultural produce are currently held up at the China border, as the latter has strengthened its Covid-19 prevention measures.

Nguyễn Quốc Trịnh, chairman of the Long An Province Dragon Fruit Association, said the province's annual output of the fruit was 400,000 tons, and he agreed with the statement that it is necessary to promote domestic consumption.

However, Nguyễn Bình Phương, deputy director of the Thủ Đức Wholesale Market Company, which runs the namesake HCM City market, said the volume of goods exported to China was very large. It would be quite difficult to transfer this to the domestic market.
