Vietnam projects $21bn export revenue from cultivated products

The cultivation sector aims to earn export revenue of more than $21 billion this year, a year-on-year increase of 2.2-2.3 per cent, the Vietnam News Agency reported the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as saying.

Vietnam aims to increase its fruit growing area to about 930,000 ha and create high added value products. Each locality will develop large-scale fruit growing areas under good agricultural practices (GAP) and food safety standards in addition to high-technology vegetable and flower production, focusing on major cities.

Vietnam earned a record $3.45 billion from fruit and vegetable exports in 2017, a year-on-year increase of 40.5 per cent.

China, Japan, the US, and South Korea were among the largest importers.
