Northern Bac Giang province has eyed export earnings of 2.61 billion USD in 2015, up 24 percent against 2014, according to the provincial Department of Trade and Industry.

The value is expected to include 1.05 billion USD contributed by the garment and textile sector, 722 million USD from electronics products, 660 million USD from computers and components, 85 million USD from plastic products, and 56 million USD from vegetables, seafood and agro-products.

Tran Van Loc, Director of the provincial Department of Trade and Industry, said the province will implement many measures to achieve that ambitious target, including streamlining administrative procedures or reducing the time of customs clearance and the granting of licences.

Besides attracting more investments to the industrial parks, depositories, depots, inland ports and logistics centres will be built to facilitate export and import activities, Loc said.

The province plans to seek new markets in Africa and the Middle East while maintaining its foothold in the traditional export markets like ASEAN, Japan, China, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, the European Union, and North America.

Enterprises will get support to take part in trade fairs as well as getting bank loans, provincial authorities stated.

According to the department, the province’s export revenue in January is estimated to reach 182.9 million USD, up 20.6 percent against the same period in 2014.-VNA
