HANOI (VNS) — Some key Binh Dinh export commodities recorded substantial surges in value and volume compared to last year, especially in the garment and timber product sectors, said Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade Vo Mai Hung.
The province earned nearly US$22 million worth from exported garments (up 34.4 per cent) and shipped abroad $18.03 million worth of eucalyptus woodchips (up 30 per cent), $3.86 million of construction stone (up 33 per cent), and $34.7 million of timber (up 6.7 per cent).
Meanwhile, the export of minerals reported big falls, with titanium shipments dropping almost 62 per cent.
As a result, the province garnered $165 million in total export revenue during the reviewed period, rising by 0.7 per cent from a year before, he added.
The Forest Products Association of Binh Dinh said foreign markets had an increased demand for outdoor furniture, enabling local companies to operate at full capacity.
Meanwhile, provincial apparel production is likely to continue growing as the Viet Nam National Textile and Garment Group and foreign firms have invested in a number of factories across Binh Dinh.
The locality is currently shipping goods to 58 countries and territories. The European Union, the US, Japan, and China are the largest markets.
Binh Dinh is located in Viet Nam's central key economic region, which also comprises Da Nang city and the provinces of Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Nam, and Quang Ngai. — VNS
