Machinery, telephone, fabric, iron and steel are the main items imported from China.
According to preliminary statistics of the General Department of Customs on the situation of export and import of goods in the first six months, China continues to be the largest supplier of goods to Vietnam when imported 30.2 USD billion of goods from this country in the first half of this year, accounting for 28.9% of the total import value of goods, up 12.3% over the same period last year.

Vietnam's top imports from China include machinery, equipment, spare parts with $ 5.5 billion; fabrics of $ 3.43 billion; phones and accessories with $ 3.63 billion; iron and steel 3.2 million tons worth $ 2.32 billion; textiles, leather and footwear with $ 1.06 billion.

In the first 6 months of this year, the value of Vietnam's imports from the top 10 markets reached $ 101 billion, accounting for nearly 97% of the total import value of the country. Most of these major markets have achieved positive growth (except for South Korea and Argentina).

Meanwhile, in terms of exports, the US continues to be the largest market of Vietnam with nearly $ 21.6 billion, accounting for 19% of the total export value of goods of the country. At the same time, exports to Vietnam's top 10 trading partners reached US $ 101.04 billion, accounting for 88% of the total export value of the country.

Thus, by the end of June this year, the total import-export goods of Vietnam reached 225.02 billion, up 12.9% over the same period last year. This is close to the value of the whole of 2012 ($ 228.31 billion).
