Two international exhibitions on plastics and rubber (Plastics and Rubber Vietnam 2016) as well as processing and packaging (Propak Vietnam 2016) are taking place at the Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre in Ho Chi Minh City from March 1-3.
Vietnam’s export turnover is estimated to reach US$13.8 billion in January, slightly increasing by 0.5% against the previous month, according to the General Statistics Office (GSO).
In the 2011-2015 period, fruits and vegetables proved to be one of Viet Nam’s stable export items, registering a high annual growth rate of 26.5% and earning the country US$2 billion in 2015 alone.
Vietnam will be able to achieve the growth target of 6.7% for 2016, thanks to strong domestic demand and exports, says HSBC in a report released on January 5.
Vietnam had shipped over six million tonnes of rice abroad as of December 17, generating US$2.445 in FOB value and US$2.542 in CIF value.
