Agri-forestry-fishery exports are expected to grow by 1.2-1.4% to reach US$31 billion this year, said the Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Development (MARD) representative at a press conference in Hanoi on November 9.
Key industries such as livestock and fishery still develop well despite numerous difficulties including natural disasters confronting eight central provinces.
According to the report, total export value jumped by 63% to US$26.4 billion in 10 months leading up to November.
MARD Deputy Minister Ha Cong Tuan said the ministry will direct localities, businesses, and piglet and poultry breeding units to implement measures to accelerate production and ensure market stabilization to meet production and food consumption demands in the remaining months of the year, especially during the Solar and Lunar New Year festivals, and exports.
It will further coordinate with relevant ministries, departments and localities to carry out a master plan to restore production and stabilize lives of people in four central provinces which have been affected by maritime environmental incidents.VOV
