There are still difficulties
In order to meet the export market, Yen Bai province has recently made significant efforts to build agricultural and forestry products. In contrast to the potential and strength of the area, there are few agricultural things sold for export, and there are no deep-processed products too. As a result, the value of the products does not match the cost of labor and the production process. For Yen Bai agriculture, this represents a big challenge going forward.

Opportunity to join competitive markets
Recently, Yen Bai businesses have accessed challenging export markets by utilizing the benefits and incentives of FTAs. “The Department of Industry and Trade will continue to strongly propagate information and effectively take advantage of opportunities of FTAs, especially generational free trade agreements,” said Mr. Nguyen Dinh Chien, Deputy Director of the Department of Industry and Trade. “New information such as CPTPP, EVFTA, UKVFTA.” Exploiting fresh information on import and export policies as well as global economic integration simultaneously “helps firms implement production, business, and search, as well as develop the export market of goods.”
According to Ms. Pham Quynh Mai, Deputy Director of the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Multilateral Trade Policy Department: “Businesses need to invest in the region since Yen Bai has a strong agricultural and forestry export industry. Regarding Yen Bai’s products to be suitable for export to the EU market, products must be clean all through the whole production and processing process, including the raw materials.”
