HCMC – Vietnam’s fruit and vegetable exports have reached nearly US$3.5 billion in the year to date, up by over 28% year-on-year.

Preliminary statistics from the General Department of Vietnam Customs showed that fruit and vegetable exports in June alone have expanded by 1% against the previous month and a sharp 16.7% year-on-year.

Dang Phuc Nguyen, general secretary of the Vietnam Fruit and Vegetable Association (VINAFRUIT), attributed the sharp increase in June’s exports to the good harvest season of key products, including durian, dragon fruit and banana.

With the current growth rate, Nguyen predicted, total export revenue from fruits and vegetables in all of 2024 could exceed US$7 billion.

In 2023, Vietnam exported US$5.69 billion worth of fruits and vegetables, up by a staggering 69.2% compared to 2022, with durian alone contributing over US$2.2 billion.
