The MoIT suggested that businesses optimize advantage of potential markets such as members of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) in order to meet the export target by the end of this year.

The MoIT aims to increase total export turnover in 2024 by about 6 percent compared to 2023 and maintain a trade surplus of about US$15 billion for the ninth consecutive year.

So far, Viet Nam has participated in and signed 17 FTAs./.
