Vietnam raked in nearly 14.1 billion U.S. dollars from exporting phones and components in the first quarter of this year, which accounted for 18.2 percent of Vietnam's total export revenue over the period, posting a year-on-year rise of 9.3 percent, according to the country's General Statistics Office Tuesday.
 
With that turnover, phones and components continued to be Vietnam's largest export item, followed by computers and electronic components, and garments and textiles.
 
In the three-month period, Vietnam also spent around 4.9 billion U.S. dollars in importing phones and their components, surging 48.1 percent year on year.
