In terms of commodities, after many consecutive months of decline, seafood exports in August 8 to many markets, including the US market, have grown positively, creating a positive signal for seafood enterprises to accelerate exports in the last months of the year.
Ms. Le Hang - Communications Director of the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Processors (VASEP) said that in August 8, seafood exports to many markets will reach the peak since the beginning of the year. Among them, it is worth noting the US market. For the first time seafood exports grew positively after 2023 consecutive months of decline, the US market regained its No. 11 position with 1 million USD of Vietnam's seafood import turnover in August, up nearly 165% over the same period in 8.
In particular, although pangasius exports are still lower than 24%, exports of all other key products to the US will recover in August 8, such as: shrimp up 2023%, tuna up 11%, other marine fish up 2%, crabs, octopus squid, shellfish all increased from 12-24% over the same period last year.
In addition to the US market, seafood exports to Japan and China in August were higher than the previous 8 months, but did not clearly reflect the recovery trend. However, Japan's discharge of nuclear wastewater is more or less disrupting the country's seafood trade with markets such as China and others. This development may help Vietnamese seafood gain more market share in some markets in the near future. Therefore, it is forecasted that seafood exports to China will increase again more strongly in the last 2 months of the year, both to meet the demand for holidays and Lunar New Year, and to partially offset the decline from the Japanese market.
Another commodity that is holding up quite firmly in terms of export value is coffee. Accumulated from the beginning of the year to mid-September 9, Vietnam's coffee exports reached 2023.1 million tons, down 22.6% in volume but turnover reached 4.3 billion USD, up 04.2% over the same period last year.
Despite the sharp decrease in export volume, the average export price of coffee in the first half of September 9 continued to increase, reaching 2023,3 USD/ton, up 151.6% compared to the first half of August 3, and up 8.2023% over the same period last year. By mid-September, Vietnam had the 32th consecutive month of increased export coffee prices, recording a record high of 1,9 USD/ton, up 6% over the previous month and up nearly 3% over the same period last year. If calculating the average export price of coffee of our country in the first 054 months of the year reached 8,30 USD/ton, it also increased by nearly 8% over the same period last year.
