The exports of the rattan industry climbed to nearly 225 million USD last year, according to statistics from the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The ministry said that Vietnam's rattan products were exported to over 120 countries and territories.

The United States ranks as the top export destination, accounting for over 19 percent of Vietnam's rattan exports, while Japan is the second-largest market, with a 17 percent share.

Nevertheless, Vietnam's rattan industry exports account for less than 3 percent of the global rattan market.-VNA
