The Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang raked in nearly 60 million USD in exports during the first two months of this year, a 24 percent increase from the same months last year.

Of the total, the export value of farm products accounted for 28.8 million USD and that from aquatic items was 27.5 million USD.

The locality has set to earn 526 million USD from exports in 2015, up 6 percent against 2014. The figure will include 315 million USD from agro-products and 170 million USD from aquatic products.

To realise its target, the local authorities are focusing on intensifying trade promotion activities in traditional markets, while seeking to expand export in new ones.

Local producers and exporters are required to increase investment in renovating equipment and technologies so as to create high-added value goods.

The local authorities also pay attention to outlining appropriate measures to solve difficulties facing enterprises in their production and business.-VNA
