Vietnam is likely to earn nearly 5.8 million US dollars from exporting construction glass next year, up 15 percent against this year's projected turnover, according to the Vietnam Architectural Glass Association Friday.
The expected higher turnover is mainly attributed to better local construction glass and higher world demand for the product, the association said, noting that Vietnam's major glass importers include South Korea, India, Cambodia and Bangladesh.
Local construction glass producers are still less competitive than many foreign rivals, the association said. Among 28 full members of the association, some have recently shipped their products to markets with stricter quality requirements, such as the United States, Canada and Japan.
Vietnam exported 4.7 million dollars worth of construction glass, mainly to Asian countries, in the first 11 months of this year, the association said.
