UKVFTA takes effect temporarily from 6am of January 1

Vietnam and the UK concluded necessary procedures for the temporary application of the bilateral free trade agreement from 6am of January 1, 2021 (Vietnam time) following the signing of the deal on December 29, 2020.

According to the Ministry of Industry and trade, in the context that the UK had officially left the European Union and the transitional period concluded on December 31, the temporary effectiveness of the UK-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (UKVFTA) ensures bilateral trade activities are not interrupted when the transitional period ends, enabling the two sides to complete domestic procedures for the deal in line with the regulations of each country.

In the time to come, the ministry will coordinate with relevant ministries, sectors and agencies to issue detailed guiding documents for the temporary enforcement of the deal, while building a plan for the implementation to optimize opportunities from the UKVFTA, thus benefiting people and businesses of Vietnam, it said.

Meanwhile, the ministry also informed that Vietnam is still on the list of countries enjoying Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) of the UK. This means Vietnamese products exported to the UK will enjoy GSP as exporters showing the certificate of origins (C/O) form A. The UK will only accept the C/O in line with the EU mechanism, allowing exporters to apply the Registered Exporter system (REX) on products to be exported to the UK in 12 months since December 31, 2020.The EU’s GSP removes import duties from products coming into the EU market from vulnerable developing countries. This helps developing countries to alleviate poverty and create jobs based on international values and principles, including labor and human rights.

Trade surplus hits $19 billion, highest since 2016

The country’s total trade revenue has hit $543.9 billion, up 5.1 per cent year-on-year

Vietnam is estimated to enjoy a trade surplus of US$19.1 billion this year, the highest since 2016, despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nguyen Viet Phong from the General Statistics Office (GSO)’s Trade and Service Statistics Department said the trade surplus is a bright spot contributing remarkably to economic growth and aiding the exchange rate and foreign exchange reserves in the context of Vietnam needing more resources for post-pandemic economic recovery in 2021.

While the world economy is seriously affected by the pandemic, the trade surplus of $19.1 billion shows Vietnam has taken advantage of opportunities brought by signed free trade agreements (FTAs), especially the EU-Vietnam FTA and the quality of the country’s exports has improved, meeting the requirements of choosy markets.

According to the GSO, in 2020, 31 commodities enjoyed export turnover of more than $1 billion, with six posting export values of more than $10 billion, accounting for 64.3 per cent of the total export turnover.

The heavy industry and mineral sector enjoyed the biggest export value of $152.5 billion, up 11.3 per cent year-on-year.

On the other side, 35 commodities posted import values of more than $1 billion this year, with four reaching $10 billion, accounting for 49.4 per cent of total import revenue.

Vietnam moved up four spots to become the second-biggest exporter to the US in 2020, with its export turnover to the country surging 24.5 per cent to an estimated $76.4 billion.

Besides traditional exports like textiles, footwear and aquatic products, Vietnam has also shipped electronics, spare parts and wooden products to the market.

According to Phong, Vietnam enjoys a trade a surplus of $62.6 billion with the US, compared to $20.3 billion with the EU, while it has trade deficits of $34.5 billion with China, $27.6 billion with the Republic of Korea, and $6.9 billion with ASEAN.

However, Vietnam’s exports to the US account for only 2.7 per cent of the American country’s total imports from all countries and territories worldwide.

Statistics from the US side show that two-way trade increased to $75.7 billion in 2019 from just $450 million in 1995 when Vietnam and the US established diplomatic relations.
