VOV.VN - Vietnamese exports to the Netherlands during the opening nine months of the year surged by 10.9% to reach US$5.58 billion compared to the same period from last year, according to the General Department of Vietnam Customs.

The Netherlands is widely considered to be a gateway to the EU market and is the leading transshipment of goods in Europe and the wider world, especially with regard to fruit and vegetables.

Most notably, the enforcement of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) is anticipated to create fresh opportunities for both Vietnamese and Dutch businesses to enhance future co-operation.

Statistics compiled by the General Department of Vietnam Customs indicate that the computers, electronic products and component group took the lead in terms of export turnover to the Dutch market during the nine-month period with US$1.24 billion, thereby representing a rise of 3.4%, and accounting for 22.3% of total export turnover.

Furthermore, the machinery, equipment, tools and spare part group ranked second with turnover of US$931.2 million throughout the reviewed period, posting a year-on-year rise of 64.3% and accounting for 16.6% of total export revenue.
