Ba Ria – Vung Tau (VNA) - The giant steel maker, Hoa Sen Group (HSG), on February 29 exported 20,000 tonnes of steel coils, worth a total of 10 million USD, from SSIT terminal in the southern province of Ba Ria – Vung Tau to the US.

A representative of HSG told Vietnam News that though it had not exported to the US for years, this was the biggest volume of steel it had exported to the US.

Hoa Sen was also the first company in the country to export such an amount to the US, he added.

The activity marked a special step for the company in its expansion in its export market, in anticipation of the Trans Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement signed earlier this month.

Exports contribute 40 percent of the company's revenue each year.

Last year, HSG exported over 400,000 tonnes of steel. The figure this year is estimated to be 450,000 tonnes.

The company's products are exported to more than 60 nations and territories.-VNA
