HA NOI (VNS)— Viet Nam exported US$2.12 billion of goodsto France in the first 11 months of 2014, up 6 per cent year-on-year, according to the Vietnamese Trade Office inFrance.

Among Viet Nam's key exports to the French market were telephones and components, footwear, textiles andgarments, home appliances and agro-forestry-fishery goods.

Despite this encouraging growth, Viet Nam's exports toFrance still lagged behind the potential of the two countries,Trade Counsellor Nguyen Canh Cuong said.

To increase exports to such a lucrative market, Cuong suggested domestic enterprises improve the quality of their products and offer better product designs. The firms should also take the initiative to seek new customers by participating in trade fairs held annually in France. . — VNS
