In January-August period, export turnover valued US$ 12.76 billion, representing a year-on-year growth of 5.22%. Meanwhile, import value reached US$ 10.66 billion, up 1.11%. 

Trade surplus exceeded US$ 2.1 billion, US$ 400 million more than that in the same period last year, accounting over 60% of national trade surplus. 

The Statistics Office attributed the locality's high trade surplus to enterprises’ efforts to seek domestic raw materials and enjoy preferences of FTAs which Viet Nam signed. 

High hard currency earners included footwear with US$ 2.76 billion, up 15.32%; machines with US$ 1 billion, up 15%; garments and textiles with US$ 1.34 billion up 4.36%; furniture with US$ 929 million, up 4.62%; transport vehicles with US$ 617 million, up 6.95%; steel products with US$ 492 million, up 4.77%.
