To boost exports in the remaining months of this year, the ministry will continue opening the market and providing updates on trade agreements, policies and regulations of foreign markets for exporters, said Deputy Minister Phung Duc Tien.

The ministry has also closely coordinated with Vietnamese commercial counsellors abroad, and supported localities and businesses in shipping qualified products to the EU, the UK, China and Japan, while working to remove trade and technical barriers for Vietnamese agricultural exports.

Given the complex developments of Covid-19, it will instruct and assist localities and enterprises to maintain production and business in line with pandemic prevention and control regulations, he said.

The ministry said in the seven months, Vietnam imported some US$24.7 billion worth of agro-forestry-aquatic products, a year-on-year increase of 42.8%, resulting in a trade surplus of around US$3.9 billion, a drop of 25.8% from the same period last year.
