So far, export revenue of vegetables and fruits outstripped the figure of US$ 2.4 billion in the whole year of 2016.  

China, the U.S., Japan and the Republic of Korea are the largest import markets of Viet Nam which all together occupy 85.4% of total vegetable and fruit export value. Meanwhile, strong export growth was recorded in Japan (64.6%), the United Arab Emirates (64.4%) and China (60.2%).

The MARD said that unfavourable weather conditions, especially recent storms, affected vegetable and fruit supply in July and August. However, the market has seen signs of recovery recently.

In the nine-month period, the country spent US$1.15 billion inpurchasing fruits and vegetables from foreign countries, up 78.2% from the same time last year./.
