Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam’s agro-fishery-forestry exports to China hit 26.4 billion USD in the first 10 months of 2016, a rise of 6.3 percent year-on-year, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD). 

China currently accounts for 20 percent of export value of Vietnam’s agro-fishery-forestry products, with main products including rubber, cassava, cashew, fresh vegetables and seafood. 

At a meeting of the steering board on agricultural market and trade association in Hanoi on November 22, MARD Deputy Minister Tran Thanh Nam requested agencies to boost agricultural exports, while avoiding shortages of goods and price increases in late 2016. 

He added that MARD closely monitor essential products, food safety and imported agricultural materials near Tet Holiday (Lunar New Year).-VNA
