In the context that the Covid-19 epidemic has not shown any signs of abating, which is still a major barrier to the “new normal” among countries, Vietnam’s agricultural product export turnover this year still increased by 26.7 % over the same period in 2020. Currently, the EU is the fourth largest export market of Vietnamese agricultural products. The import tax exemption and reduction acommitted in the EVFTA are helping to increase the competitiveness of Vietnamese products compared to regional competitors.
