Vietnam’s total exports to 10 countries in the CPTPP saw an increase of US$ 1.56 billion year-on-year in the January – July period, including high jumps in markets such as Japan with US$1.01 billion, Canada with US$546 million and Mexico with US$290 million.
Overall, Vietnam’s exports to CPTPP country members accounted for 15.4% of total exports. Among Vietnam’s 27 export markets worth more than US$1-billion, six are from the pact.
Additionally, high growth in exports of the country’s agriculture – fishery – forestry to CPTPP members in the seven-month period has helped offset decline in Vietnam’s exporting those products to the Chinese market, while Vietnam’s imports from CPTPP markets declined 2.3% or US$503 million.
