VTV.vn - The export value of fruits and vegetables hit 292 million USD in November, bringing the 11-month figure to 3.16 billion USD, up 43.2 percent annually, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

China, Japan, the US and the Republic of Korea remain major importers with respective market share of 75.6 percent, 3.6 percent, 2.9 percent and 2.6 percent.

Strong growth was seen in exports to Japan (67.6 percent), the United Arab Emirates (56.9 percent) and China (52.7 percent).

During the month, fruits and vegetables import reached 142 million USD, raising the import value in 11 months by 72.3 percent annually to 1.41 billion USD.

The ministry also reported that orange prices further declined in the Mekong Delta to 4,000 – 7,000 VND per kg, or one third of prices last year, mostly due to excessive supply.

Meanwhile, durian is sold at 130,000 – 160,000 VND per kg, 20,000 – 30,000 VND higher than imported ones.

In late November, supply of several vegetables recovered, leading to slight decrease in prices.
