CA MAU (VNS) — The southernmost province of Ca Mau earned US$185.46 million from exports during the first two months of 2014, equivalent to 15.56 per cent of the yearly plan, and up 97.53 per cent year-on-year.
The revenue was mainly contributed by exports of aquatic products, at $173.53 million, followed by nitrates with $10.55 million and farm produce at $1.38 million.
According to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, aquatic products are still among the key exports shipped to the province's main importers, such as the US, Japan and the EU, which demand higher quality of food hygiene and safety standards.
Thus, it is vital to tighten the control of the quality of input materials for aquatic exports, the department said.
Further, the province is taking action to raise its export turnover to $1.1 billion this year. — VNS
