Despite optimistic signs, compared to the same period last year, production increased to 21.5%, but the value decreased by 3.4%.

The reason is that in the 4 main export markets of the cashew industry, the United States, China, the Netherlands and Germany, there are two markets with a sharp decline in export value.

With this impressive result, for many consecutive years, Vietnam has become the world’s No. 1 cashew export country. However, in 2018, cashew exports decreased slightly compared to 2017, reaching US $ 3.37 billion, down 4.2% due to reduced export prices.

Although it is the world’s No. 1 exporter, the added value of the cashew industry is not high. The cashew industry in Vietnam needs to move to the second period, focusing on doubling the production, processing and export value of the industry.
