Hanoi has earned almost 1.7 billion USD from exports in the first two months of 2014, up 14.5 percent from the same period last year.

In February, the capital is estimated to see an export turnover of 801 million USD, representing 92.4 percent of last month’s figure and a 33.9 percent surge year-on-year.

Most commodity groups have enjoyed growth in their exports, except for agricultural products (down 13.8 percent), and computer components and peripheral devices (down 29.9 percent).

Manufacturing for export in Hanoi is reportedly accelerating as many businesses have won shipment contracts and regained production tempo after the long Lunar New Year holiday.-VNA
