HCMC – Exports of veggies and fruits amounted to US$459 million in the first half of January 2024, soaring 89% over the same period in 2023, according to preliminary data from the General Department of Vietnam Customs. This optimistic start has fueled expectations for US$6.5 billion in export revenue from these items in all of 2024, said Dang Phuc Nguyen, general secretary of the Vietnam Fruit and Vegetables Association. The diverse range of fruits and vegetables available has also played a key role in this export boom. If successful, export revenue from farm produce could be boosted further, Nguyen said. In 2023, the vegetable and fruit export sector achieved an exceptional milestone, with export revenue amounting to US$5.6 billion, up a staggering 167% compared to 2022.
