HÀ NỘI — The total export turnover of the agriculture, forestry and fishery sector is estimated at US$3.49 billion last month, up 27.1 per cent over the same period last year, reported the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

To promote the export of agricultural, forestry and fishery products, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development will coordinate with localities to support trade in border provinces in order to promote the export of agricultural, forestry and aquatic products to the Chinese market.
The ministry will also continue to negotiate and remove trade barriers, open markets for Vietnamese agricultural products for official export such as fruits, aquatic and livestock products.
In particular, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development also implements specific solutions to promote domestic consumption through the organisation of trade fairs to implement the campaign "Vietnamese people give priority to use Vietnamese goods"; promote and introduce key agricultural products, local specialities, businesses and cooperatives to consumers in big cities. — VNS
