– Export turnover of the southern province of Dong Nai hit 1.267 billion USD in January, up nearly 14 percent against the same period last year, according to the provincial Department of Statistics.

Of the figure, State-owned enterprises and non-State firms 18.8 million USD and 149.5 million USD, respectively, while foreign-invested firms created 1.1 billion USD.

Commodities with big export turnover were footwear (279 million USD), garment-textiles (177 million USD), wooden products (102 million USD), fiber (106 million USD), and machinery, equipment and spare parts (87 million USD).

The provincial People’s Committee attributed the positive results to efforts made by local businesses in stablising the market and signing export contracts at the end of 2017.

Dong Nai’s index of industrial production in January increased by 8.76 percent year-on-year, with the highest rise recorded in processing-manufacturing – at 9.37 percent. - VNA
