Published: Mon Apr 27 2015

We continue to be optimistic towards the Vietnamese shipping industry this quarter, with forecasts unchanged from Q2 2015. Leading the way in terms of the highest rate of year-on-year (y-o-y) container throughput will be the port of Da Nang (10.0%), while the port of Ho Chi Minh City is anticipated to see y-o-y tonnage throughput growth of 7.61%, beating the port of Da Nang's forecast.

Underpinning this impressive growth is growth in exports. Indeed, total export turnover in Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, increased 4.3% y-o-y in Q1 2015 to USD2.67bn. Total sales of goods and services in the reported period rose 11.9% to VND442trn (USD21bn), while retail sales increased 11.7% to over VND104trn (USD4.9bn).

The key exports in the reported quarter included textiles and garments, processed agri-products and electronics with the major markets being Japan, China, ASEAN nations and the US. Overall export turnover in Vietnam for Q1 2015 stood at USD35.7bn, a rise of 6.9% y-o-y compared with the same period in the previous year (VNA/Intellasia).
