In May alone, the sector’s export revenue was estimated at US$5.01 billion, an increase of 40.2% compared to May 2020 and up 1.3% from the previous month.

The MARD said that it is planning to hold seminars and forums to promote exports, open markets, and provide information on trade agreements for export enterprises, as well as guiding businesses and localities on the implementation of policies and regulations of export markets in accordance with the Covid-19 situation.

In addition, the ministry will closely coordinate with Vietnam’s commercial counsellors abroad to support localities and enterprises in exporting their agricultural products in the context of the pandemic, while continuing to carry out bilateral cooperation activities with partners from China, Laos, Cambodia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Indonesia, Israel, Norway, New Zealand, Russia, Hungary, and Cuba.
