HA NOI (VNS) — Two-way trade between Viet Nam and Chile surpassed $791.9 million in the first 11 months of this year with the balance of trade in favour of the Southeast Asian nation.
During the January-November period, Viet Nam's exports to Chile were valued at $465.6 million while imports from the South American country were $326.4 million.
Nguyen Thanh Quang, a representative from the Chilean Consulate General's Trade Office in HCM City, said Viet Nam's main exports were footwear, apparel, coffee, plastic products, vegetable and fruits and wooden furniture.
Chile had advantages in mining, metallurgy, fishing, wine making, and food processing which turned out products in line with Viet Nam's demand, he added.
