CAN THO (VNS)— Despite global economic difficulties, the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta city of Can Tho generated US$1.42 billion from exports in 2013, up 18.4 per cent year-on-year, according to local authorities.
The encouraging results were attributed to greater efforts by local enterprises in revising business strategies with the focus on improving the quality of their products and sharpening their competition in traditional markets, as well as seeking new outlets.
Currently, the city is shipping products, including predominantly processed agricultural goods, seafood, rice, textile and garments, to 80 countries and territories. — VNS
