Vietnamese exports to Mexico have maintained a strong growth, earning 564 million USD in the first half of this year, a year-on-year rise of over 24 percent.

According to Vietnam ’s Embassy in Mexico , this figure is mainly attributable to key export items including footwear, garments, aquatic products, electronic goods and spare parts, coffee and rubber.

Vietnamese Commercial Counsellor in Mexico Hoang Anh Dung said that during the reviewed period, Vietnamese businesses imported Mexican goods worth over 46 million USD, an annual rise of 64.72 percent, including iron and steel, computers, animal feed, electronic products, spare parts and accessories.
