Vietnamese Trade Counsellor in Israel Le Thai Hoa suggested Vietnamese enterprises step up exports to the country, yet attention should be paid to contract terms on risk insurance.

In the first quarter of this year, Vietnam exported 231 million USD worth of goods to Israel, up 23.7%, and imported 330.6 million USD from the country, a year-on-year rise of 27.7%.

As of the end of April, the values stood at 310 million USD and 440 million USD, respectively, Hoa said.
