Steel exports rose by nearly 130 percent in the first 11 months of this year to $10.8 billion, according to the Vietnam Steel Association.

Hoa Phat exported 914,000 tonnes of finished construction steel products, a year-on-year rise of 90 percent. It plans to export over one million tonnes, double the volume it shipped last year.

The association expected exports to be robust this month due to rising global demand and a temporary shortage in China.

Vietcombank Securities Company explained that China is gradually reducing its steel exports.

The association said Vietnam has a production capacity of around 24 million tonnes a year, and output this year is expected to reach 21.2 million tonnes, enough to fully meet domestic and export needs.
