Exports to France reached 2.1 billion USD in the first 7 months of 2022

According to statistics of the General Department of Customs, the export turnover of Vietnamese goods to France in July 2022 reached 333.8 million USD, up 1.7% compared to the previous month, for the first 7 months of the year. Reached 2.1 billion USD, up 15.1% over the same period last year.

In recent years, France has always been one of the leading trade partners of Vietnam in the EU.

Textiles and garments are the items with the largest export turnover to the French market in the first 7 months of 2022, reaching 390.1 million USD, up 28.1%, accounting for 14.8%. Next is footwear, reaching 375 million USD, up 16.6% over the same period last year, accounting for 17.7% of total export turnover. Next is the group of phones of all kinds and components, reaching 330 million USD.

In the first 7 months of 2022, the number of items exported to France with export turnover increased compared to the same period last year: Toys, sports equipment, and parts increased by 71.6%; aquatic products by 35.4%; ceramic products increased by 36.3%.

Imported agricultural and food products provide up to 20% of the annual domestic consumption in France. Despite being the world’s second-largest ocean power, according to data, nearly two-thirds of the shrimp and fish consumed in France are imported. At the same time, more than half of the vegetables and fruits consumed in France are imported.

In addition to the reason for the continuous decrease in the cultivated area, one of the other important reasons is the continuous increase in market demand for imported fruit juices and fruits (such as avocado, mango, and dragon fruit…).

Although France is Europe’s leading country in organic farming, with high demand, its supply of organic agricultural products is only enough to supply 67% of domestic demand. Therefore, up to one-third of organic food consumed domestically in France must be imported.
