Fruit, vegetable exports down 9.9% in Jan-FebWednesday, March 13,2019
AsemconnectVietnam - The export turnover of fruits and vegetables fell 9.9% year-on-year to US$ 584 million in the first two months of 2019, according to the department of agro-product processing and market development under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
Strong growth was seen in the Republic of Korea (up 68.2%), the Netherlands (up 60.2%), Australia (up 54.8%) and the United Arab Emirates (up 36.8%).
The reduction was attributed to fluctuations of the fruit and vegetable market in February due to the prolonged Lunar New Year (Tet holiday).
In 2018, the U.S. was one of the markets with the most impressive growth of 37% compared to 2017. It is forecast that Viet Nam?s fruit exports to the U.S. will continue seeing high growth thanks to the export of mangoes.
