Plastics exports to Japan to reach US$100 million

The country’s plastics exports to Japan is likely to hit US$100 million in the second quarter of this year, up 23 percent year-on-year, according to the Vietnam Plastics Association.

Japan imported over US$81 million worth of Vietnamese plastics goods during the first quarter of this year, an increase of more than 200 percent over the same period last year, making Japan the biggest consumer of Vietnamese plastics products.

However, the association said Vietnamese producers and exporters to the Japanese market could still make use of untapped potential for further growth, by increasing production, improving product quality and diversifying product designs.
