Domestic and overseas businesses operating in Hanoi have recorded a total export revenue of 780.4 million USD in April this year, up 4.4 percent against last month and 10.4 percent compared with the same period last year.

Of the total, the export turnover of local businesses rose by 4.6 percent and 10 percent, respectively.

These modest figures indicate a fall in sale by businesses in the capital due to contracting international markets such as the European Union, Japan and the US .

In the first four months of this year, Hanoi ’s export turnover reached 2.86 billion USD, a year on year increase of 2.3 percent, of which the value of exports from local businesses rose by 3 percent.

The increase can be seen on exports such as garments and textiles at 5.2 percent and computer components and peripheral devices 29.2 percent.-VNA
