The Commerce Ministry has set its official export growth target for 2013 in a range of 8-9% to US$250.41 billion, similar to the forecasts of other institutions. 

The ministry said expansion in 2013 would be driven mainly by healthy growth in automobiles, electrical appliances, rubber products, construction raw materials, canned and processed  seafood, raw and processed poultry.

The two best performers are expected to be the automotive industry with 15% growth from an already impressive performance in 2012, and processed chicken, with a 12% rise forecast.
