Director of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade Ngo Cong Tuoc said the province has boosted trade promotion to expand export markets for its key products such as rice and seafood, and footwear.
Local exporters have also focused on traditional markets while exploring new and potential markets. Connection between enterprises and farmers in key production areas has also been strengthened to ensure material supply for for-export processing.
In order to realise the export target of US$520 million, the province will develop a large-scale and high-quality rice growing zone and expand high-tech shrimp farming in the Long Xuyen Quadrangle to ensure shrimp and rice supply for processing for export.
The province also encourages local enterprises to modernise technology, improve production procedures and product quality, build brands and enhance competitiveness, particularly for aquatic products.
Assistance will be offered to firms facing difficulties in capital and labour to boost production and exports of key products, including rice, aquatic products, footwear and wood.
Trade promotion and marketing will be strengthened, in tandem with information and market forecast.
