In the first two months of 2011, Vietnam's export volume to Denmark increased by 59.5% as compared to the same period of 2010.

In 2010 only, Vietnam's textile and garment exports to Denmark attained 64.8 million USD, accounting for 33.2% of the total export turnover of Vietnamese goods to this market, up 60.5% in comparison with 2009.
