Ha Noi’s export value up 24% in January

 Capital city Ha Noi gained a year-on-year growth of 24 per cent in export value to reach US$1.05 billion in January.
The export value from the state-owned sector was $139 million, up 9.8 per cent; it was $352 million from the private sector, up 16.6 per cent; and $556 million from foreign direct investment, up 33.6 per cent.

In January, all key export items achieved strong growth in export value, including agricultural products (up 3.6 per cent against the same period last year); computer, components and peripherals (up 68.1 per cent); transport means and components (up 12.7 per cent); machinery and components (up 21.8 per cent); and glass and glass products (up 25 per cent).

Ha Noi’s export value has increased sharply in recent years because businesses in the city have taken advantage of the recovery of major economies of the world, such as the United States, Japan, the European Union and China, reported

Meanwhile, municipal authorities have also come up with solutions to support enterprises in promoting exports, including programmes connecting banks with enterprises, land and tax policies and policies encouraging enterprises to apply advanced technology for production, processing and consumption.

Nguyen Gia Phuong, director of Ha Noi Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion Centre, said to support enterprises in expanding export markets and promoting brand products, the centre had continuously organised delegations of enterprises to join large international fairs and paid special attention to markets that signed free trade agreements with Việt Nam.

The capital city has welcomed foreign enterprise delegations to Ha Noi to facilitate trade cooperation with local businesses to support trade villages, agricultural production enterprises and textiles and garment companies in seeking customers.

However, it will not be easy for Ha Noi to reach the growth target of 7.5-8 per cent in export turnover set by the People’s Committee of Hà Nội for this year against last year because importing countries have trade barriers and quality standards for imported goods from foreign countries, including Việt Nam. Moreover, local enterprises have not signed long-term contracts.

Nguyen Thanh Hai, deputy director of Ha Noi Department of Industry and Trade, said the department and the People’s Committee would continue supporting enterprises in taking loans and entering export markets. Specifically, they would strengthen trade promotion activities in Japan, mainland China, Hong Kong and Germany, he said.

"Ha Noi welcomes delegations of foreign import enterprises to help local businesses diversify the export markets," he said.

The department would also continue administrative reforms, reduce business and investment conditions and improve the quality of online public services.

In the process of restructuring the export sector, the department would focus on improving the competitiveness of products, efficiency of investment and enterprises’ ability to join the global value chain.

Experts said to increase the export value, enterprises should renew models of products according to the demand on markets and increase competitiveness by cutting production costs. They also need to improve product quality and develop the brand as well as promote cooperation with local businesses. In addition to this, they should take advantages in export opportunities from free trade agreements that Viet Nam has signed with foreign partners.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
