The export revenues of agro-forestry-fishery products reached a new record of 53.22 billion USD, 9.3% higher than that of 2021, with a trade surplus of over 8.5 billion USD. The domestic market has received more attention while the Government and the sector made efforts to promptly remove trade barriers, boosting the exports of agricultural, forestry, and fishery products. In 2023, the agriculture sector targets a growth rate of 3% and export revenue of 54 billion USD. It aims to have 78% of communes and at least 270 districts nationwide recognised as new-style rural areas./.
