The EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), which took effect on August 1, 2020, has also generated considerable advantages for Vietnamese firms, as most tariffs on fresh fruit and vegetables have been slashed to zero percent, the trade office noted.
Despite the optimistic outlook, Cong Thuong wrote, the market is relatively small compared to others in Europe. It's also not easy for new exporters to compete with multilateral fruit and vegetable providers, logistics firms, and packaging companies with a long presence there.
Vegetables grown in Europe now account for 90 percent of those imported into Northern Europe, while those from developing nations stand at less than 10 percent.
Off-season produce like tomatoes and bell peppers are often provided by countries near Northern Europe. Geographical distance and a lack of direct air routes to the region also pose certain difficulties for Vietnam's fruit and vegetable exports.
The newspaper suggested Vietnamese companies consider producing organic and convenience products, pointing out European consumers' increasing preference for healthy diets with clean and natural food, as well as those that serve their busy lifestyles.
To make use of this trend, they should ensure that product quality meets requirements, the article said.
It also noted that more attention needs to be paid to sustainable and responsible production and business practices, adding that products will be accepted by Northern European consumers if they comply with sustainability standards.
Brand building and product storytelling are also tools necessary for marketing new products, particularly those for niche markets, according to the paper./.

Authorities are concerned that the problem could become severe if they do not have solutions.
The provincial People's Committee has instructed relevant agencies to adjust the water supply to increase the usage rate among residents.
The province also wants to reduce underground water exploitation gradually, and attract investment to build a network of freshwater supply stations.
It has asked ministries for funds to build five sluices to prevent saltwater intrusion in the provinces of Long An and Tien Giang, near Vam Co Tay River which supplies the Rach Chanh Water Plant.
The province plans to build a reservoir to store freshwater in Thanh Hoa district to supply water to nearly 12,000 households and for agricultural and industrial production.
In Can Duoc district's Phuoc Tuy commune, which faced water shortage in the dry season, residents now have access to fresh water after the commune's People's Committee allocated funds to upgrade water supply pipelines and presented water containers to people who live far from water wells. People have also been encouraged to use water economically.
The committee has called on enterprises to invest in water wells. The commune has nine wells that supply water to more than 2,000 households.
Long An is one of several Mekong Delta provinces severely affected by drought and saltwater intrusion every year. More than 8,000 households in the province lack fresh water.
In a similar situation, trees in mangrove forests in the Mekong Delta province of Sac Trang's Vinh Chau town have died or are dying because of water shortage, according to the town's Forest Protection Bureau.
Trees have died in a 1.5ha mangrove forest managed by the town's People's Committee and in a 175ha mangrove forest managed by the bureau.
The mangrove forests are mostly white mangrove and spotted mangrove more than 10 years old.
The upgrading and construction of a sea dyke and a dam outside the mangrove forests to prevent saltwater intrusion has contributed to water shortage, according to the bureau.
After the province built the dam at the Ho Be - Giong Chua Canal and rebuilt the Nam Doan Sluice in 2017, seawater was blocked from the forests.
The Giong Chua Canal, which provides water for the mangrove forests is silted, cannot transport sufficient water from the My Thanh River to supply the forests.
Hoang Van Thang, Chairman of the town's People's Committee, said prolonged drought and severe saltwater intrusion this year had contributed to water shortage.
The town is opening sluice No16 to take water to save the dying mangrove trees, and will choose a suitable time to replace dead mangrove trees and recover the forests.
This is the first time that many trees in the mangrove forests in Vinh Chau Town have died because of water shortage, according to the bureau./.

|More administrative procedures to go online: Minister||More administrative procedures to go online: Minister|
The Government of Vietnam wants the business community to provide feedback and input to help improve the National Public Service Portal, heard a conference held by the Prime Minister’s Council on Administrative Reform and the World Bank in Hanoi on May 19.

To cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government has been pushing more administrative procedures online, including the use of e-documents and e-reports, and the establishment of information and public service portals on local levels said Minister-Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung.
The Government's Decision 45/2020/ND-CP also dictated, for the first time, that online procedures be recognized by governmental agencies to reduce red tape, paperwork for businesses and to promote online transactions as well as the digital economy.
"Since its formation, the National Public Service Portal has proven to be an effective tool in the country's scheme to digitalize administrative procedures. In addition, the portal also helps improve the transparency and accountability of local governments," said Dung.
The portal has developed from just eight groups of public services, to provide nearly 400 services with more than half designed to meet the needs of businesses. The portal allows firms to open service tickets with ministries, agencies and local authorities.
Citizens and businesses can track how their applications are being processed and at the same time, the Office of the Government can keep an eye on the proceedings and when required, send feedback and instructions.
Speaking at the conference, the World Bank's Country Director for Vietnam Ousmane Dione said the COVID-19 pandemic had brought unprecedented disruption to social and economic development on a global scale. He called for the Government and business community to work together to fight the crisis.
Along with effective public health measures taken by the Government, the country's swift digitalization of public services was a highlight of its ability to deal with the pandemic.
Dione said the portal was of tremendous value in stopping the spread of the coronavirus and in protecting the health of citizens and public servants.
He called for actions to be taken by the private sector to hasten business digitalization to improve business resilience and ensure operations can run uninterrupted. As made clear by the pandemic, businesses with a high level of digitalization have proven much less likely to be affected while others suffered disastrous consequences or were put out of operations.
In addition, applications of digitalization, e-commerce, big data and Artificial Intelligence may boost productivity and add value for small-to-medium-sized enterprises by up to 26 percent, he said, citing a 2019 study conducted in Singapore. On a regional scale, digitalization has the potential to create 1.1 trillion VND in GDP value for ASEAN economies by 2025.
Dione also called for the Government to continue with administrative reforms to cut costs and time for businesses. To this end, data gathered by the portal may provide an excellent starting point for the Government to identify time-wasting procedures and bottlenecks in the system.
The national public service portal debuted on December 9, 2019, and has logged more than 140,000 registered accounts, 35 million visits, 7.3 million documents and processed more than 68,000 documents.
It is estimated as much as 6.49 trillion VND (280 million USD) has been saved thanks to online public services a year, which includes 3.036 trillion VND from the portal.
According to the report of the Government Office, after six months in operation, the portal has supplied 389 online public services (160 for people and 229 for enterprises) in sales promotion, electricity supply, payment of taxes, charges and fees, electronic tax declaration and payment and tax extension request.
Starting from May 12, the portal has started additional services to support citizens and businesses affected by COVID-19 including workers who have lost their jobs or had their salaries suspended, employers who have borrowed to compensate laid-off workers, applications to delay payments of personal and business income./.
