Vietnam's vegetable exports set to surpass RM4.65bil by 2030

HANOI, Nov 21 (Bernama-Xinhua) -- Vietnam's vegetable export revenue is forecast to reach about US$1 billion to US$1.5 billion (RM4.65 billion - RM6.95 billion) by 2030, according to a report on Monday, citing a project recently approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

According to the project, Vietnam's vegetable production is set at 23 to 24 million tonnes with about one to 1.3 million tonnes designated for processing.

Vietnam will develop safe and concentrated vegetable growing areas with clear origins in order to meet domestic and export demand, contributing to national food security, food safety and hygiene, and improving community health, VNA reported.

By 2030, the national vegetable cultivation will cover an area of some 1.2 to 1.3 million hectares. Around 360,000 to 400,000 hectares will be dedicated to safe and concentrated vegetable production.

Among this, roughly 50,000 to 60,000 hectares are projected for processed vegetables, including tomato, cucumber, chilli, potato and leafy greens. - Bernama-Xinhua
