HA NOI (Biz Hub) — The Ministry of Industry and Trade has announced the pre-qualification list of Reliable Exporters 2015.

The list of 311 reliable exporters was selected by agencies and organisations on the basis of the specified criteria of minimum export turnover, the reputation of doing business with foreign partners and the observance of corporate obligation to the state in the area of customs and taxation.

The exporters come from 22 key export sectors of Viet Nam, including coffee, textile and garments, rubber and tea, as well as electric wire, cable and cashew.

The textile and garment sector took the lead with the participation of 38 businesses, followed by rubber, coffee and tea with 32, 17 and 12 units, respectively.

On the list are well-known names, such as Viet Nam Intimex Joint Stock Corporation with export turnover of US$604 million, Binh Phuoc General Import and Export Company with $182 million, Nha Be Corporation with $651 million and Viet Tien Garment Corporation with $404 million, as well as Tea Kwang Vina Industrial JSC with $535 million and Chang Shin Viet Nam Co. Ltd with $467 million.

The programme "Reliable Exporters," annually held by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT), was conducted from 2004. It is one of the trade promotion activities of the ministry to create favorable conditions for foreign partners to learn and promote trade with Vietnamese enterprises.

The programme aims to record the positive contributions of export enterprises for Viet Nam's export growth and introduce and promote export enterprises in Viet Nam with foreign partners.

In 2015, Viet Nam made significant progress in exports, contributing to the country's growth. Exports were estimated to reach $162.4 billion, an increase of 8.1 per cent compared with 2014.

The listed businesses will receive support from the MoIT, including free advertising of corporate image and products on the ministry's website and magazines, free use of the Reliable Exporter logo made by the ministry and priority to take part in activities of the national trade promotion programme, market surveys, seminars, fairs and business forums organised by the ministry.

In addition, the businesses will enjoy a free monthly report on export commodities and the foreign market from the industry and trade information centre. They can also join online business training courses for free and get direct introduction on foreign customers who are interested in importing products.

The ministry will officially announce the list of Reliable Exporters 2015 next month. — VNS
