The southern province of Tay Ninh will strive to earn more than 2.2 billion USD from exports in 2014.

Of which, 720 million USD will come from export activities through its border gates with Cambodia, up 20 percent from 2013.

The province has also defined its main products, including garments and textiles, footwear, plastics, handicrafts, cashew, rubber latex and sugar.

To reach the target, the southern province will continue enhancing the development of border gate economic and industrial zones to attract more investment.

At the same time, it will help businesses, especially foreign-invested firms, address their difficulties to help them operate more effectively in the province.

Tay Ninh will also intensify border trade promotion and facilitate goods exchanges between businesses and people in border areas.

The province’s 2013 export turnover is estimated at 1.825 billion USD, a year-on-year increase of 16 percent. Its exports through border gates with Cambodia are expected to enjoy a rise of 18.6 percent, reaching 600 million USD.-VNA
