Up to now, the products of the village have been present in more than 50 countries in the world with over 88% of the total value of products for export.
With the diversified nature of the product, and at the same time serving large export orders, Phu Vinh requires large, stable and abundant inputs.

The price of raw materials makes it difficult for exporters to negotiate with customers, "she said.
