ABSTRACT
This article informs that Vietnam's exports have been growing faster than imports in 2004 and as a result the full-year trade deficit will narrow. Faster-than-expected growth in exports is mostly due to the higher price of oil, of which Vietnam is a net exporter. Vietnam's exports during the first 10 months of 2004 reached $20.3bn, representing average growth in the year to October of 24.2% y-o-y. Imports during the same period reached $23.2bn, representing growth of 17.8%, while the trade deficit for the period was $2.9bn.
