HCMC – Vietnam’s agro-forestry-fishery product exports have reached an unprecedented milestone, at a remarkable US$53 billion in revenue this year. Tien emphasized that, despite numerous challenges in export markets for agro-forestry-fishery products, the entire sector has achieved an impressive gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate of 3.83%, a record high over the past decade. Furthermore, exports of four other key products exceeded the US$3 billion mark, with cashew nuts reaching US$3.63 billion, coffee at US$4.18 billion, shrimp at US$3.38 billion, and wood and wooden products at US$13.37 billion. Although the export revenue for agro-forestry-fishery products fell short of the government’s target, several products demonstrated impressive growth. For example, durian exports generated a remarkable US$2.25 billion in revenue, a five-fold increase from 2022.
