Although suffering a slight reduction, the import turnover of automobile spare parts and components in 2020 was still larger than the import turnover of completed automobiles by more than $1.6 billion.

According to the General Department of Vietnam Customs, in December 2020, the country spent $527 million to import automobile components and spare parts of all kinds, up 23.4% compared to November 2020.
