Despite the heavy impact from the Covid-19 pandemic, Vietnam import and export activities in the first four months of 2021 still recorded an outstanding growth at a recording rate within the past 10 years. However, there are many barriers that the import and export market is currently facing.

Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has announced that, in the context of the spread of Covid-19 epidemic, directly causing negative consequences to the supply chain and global economies such as the lack of empty containers, the increase in freight rates, the high transportation costs, etc., Vietnam import and export has continuously recorded positive results and sustainable development based on uniform growth in all key industries such as electronics, textiles, footwear, machinery and equipment, agricultural products, etc.

According to the report, the total import-export turnover in the first four months of 2021 was estimated at 206.51 billion USD, increasing 29.5% over the same period last year. In particular, exports reached 103.9 billion USD, up 28.3% and imports reached 102.6 billion USD, up 30.8%. In this period, the trade balance of goods was recorded to have a trade surplus of 1.29 billion USD.

The Vietnam import and export is also forecasted to continue to prosper in the upcoming quarters when free trade agreements are gradually being implemented in a more comprehensive and effective manner. In addition, thanks to agreements such as CPTPP, EVFTA, UKFTA, etc., Vietnamese goods are estimated to have the opportunity to penetrate into partner markets with preferential tariffs, thereby promoting the manufacturing sector and other related ones.

However, the Vietnam import and export is still facing many barriers such as the difficult transportation of goods; the poor information technology system and infrastructure; the lack of visibility to grasp the progress of delivery and handling of goods at key ports to take necessary regulatory measures, causing difficulties for production flows, supply chains, etc. Especially, Vietnam's import and export activities are still struggling with heavy consequences after the incident in the Suez Canal, an important point on the journey of exporting goods to the EU.
