Coffee is an export highlight of agricultural products in the first half of 2023, as the industry's export revenue earned $2 billion in the period, the General Department of Customs has announced.

According to statistics from the department, as of June 15, the country exported 934,900 tonnes of coffee, down 3.7% compared to the same period in 2022 with export prices increasing nearly $2 per tonnes.

The sector has been listed in "one-billion-USD" club since 2010 and reached its peak of $4.056 billion in 2022. The club includes exports that fetch at least $1 billion a year.

Vietnamese coffee has been present in 38 markets worldwide, of which it enjoys an export turnover of over 10 million in 25 markets and more than $100 million in six traditional ones.

If export turnover reaches about $360 million a month from now until end of this year, the sector will set a new record of $4.5 billion in 2023, an increase of 10.9% compared to 2022.
