The imports of goods for export production and essential goods accounted for 88.8%; imports of the group of goods that need to be controlled accounted for only 5.8%.

“The trade balance continued to maintain a trade surplus of US$743 million (the same period last year witnessed a trade deficit of US$1.86 billion), contributing positively to the balance of payments, stabilizing exchange rates and stabilizing of macroeconomics indicators of the economy," Mrs. Nguyen Thi Thuy Hien said.

In the second half of the year, it is forecasted that the economy will remain unpredictable. To strive to complete and exceed the targets assigned by the National Assembly and the Government in 2022, including: the index of industrial production (IIP) increasing by about 7-8%; export turnover increasing by about 8%, and maintaining a trade surplus., the Industry and Trade sector determined to focus on boosting exports and promoting production development.

Supporting businesses in market information, export promotion, taking advantage of commitments in signed FTAs ​​and through global value chains to find new markets and encouraging businesses to innovate to create new products.
