Vietnam eyes to expand coffee exports to Africa

The Trade Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) and Vietnamese trade offices in Africa will jointly organize a consultation session for domestic businesses interested in exporting coffee to the African market.

The event will take place directly on July 21 in the Central Highlands of Dak Lak, which is considered the “capital” of coffee in Vietnam, as well as via Zoom and the Trade Promotion Agency’s Facebook fan page.

According to the agency, experts from the Vietnamese trade offices in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, and Nigeria will clarify issues concerning the import and export of coffee products to the African market, including quality, payment and shipping methods, and goods insurance.

With a population of over 1,4 billion people and a high demand for imports of a variety of goods, Africa is a very promising market for Vietnamese goods, particularly coffee.

Vietnam is one of the five largest coffee suppliers on the market, which imports coffee worth approximately 750 million USD annually.
