HCM CITY — With their high demand for agricultural products, South Korea and Japan offer opportunities for Việt Nam to boost export of farm produce, especially fruits and vegetables, Đỗ Quốc Hưng, deputy director general of the Asia-Africa Market Department, has said. “Currently, the South Korean market has allowed the import of coconut, banana, mango and dragon fruits from Việt Nam. But like the Korean market, export of Vietnamese farm produce to Japan is still low. Free trade agreements that Việt Nam has signed with the two countries offer advantages for domestic firms to boost exports. Vietnamese fruits and vegetables were exported to more than 60 countries and territories, with China, the US, South Korea, Japan, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Thailand, and Australia among the biggest importers.
