NDO/VNA – Trade between Vietnam and the United Kingdom in 2014 was valued at GBP2.8 billion (US$4.5billion), a two percent decrease from the previous year, as announced by the Commercial Office at the Vietnamese Embassy in the UK.

Vietnam’s exports to the UK during the year earned GBP2.46 billion (US$3.95 billion), generated primarily though phones, valued at GBP740 million; garments at GBP373 million; footwear at GBP362 million; wood and wooden products at GBP168 million; computers and spare parts at GBP117 million; and aquatic products at GBP101 million.

Automobiles and pharmaceuticals accounted for the majority of Vietnam’s imports from the UK.

To further develop trade between the two countries in 2015, the Vietnam Commercial Office suggested domestic stakeholders organise market-relevant trade promotion events to connect potential partners, especially at the Vietnam-UK Joint Economic and Trade Commission’s eighth session to be held in London in March.
