economic growth, achieving US$200 billion in 2017 and reaching a very impressive

growth of over 21%. According to the plan to increase Vietnam’s export

competitiveness to 2020, vision to 2030 issued by the Prime Minister on August 3,

2017, the general objectives are to enhance the competitiveness of Vietnamese

exports in the world market, treble the 2010 export value by 2020, achieve trade

balance by 2020, and take a trade surplus in 2021-2030.

Government of Vietnam on promoting the important role of the business

community and entrepreneurs, particularly supporting exporters in Vietnam to

overcome difficulties, enhance their competitiveness and expand international
