Vietnam on track to achieve 600 bln USD in foreign trade: Ministry

The goal of 600 billion USD in foreign trade is likely to be realised by the end of the year because by October 15, the national import-export turnover had exceeded 510 billion USD, according to the Agency of Foreign Trade under the Ministry of Industry and Trade.


With the current trade growth rate, the import-export turnover for the whole year is expected to exceed 600 billion USD.

The trade balance will heavily depend on the results of the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the ministry said, adding that it would continue to implement a range of solutions to support businesses and promote exports.

Ministries, sectors and localities should focus on measures to keep the pandemic under control as well as remove difficulties for production and circulation of goods, it said./.
