Statistics show that Hunan exported 15,000 vehicles to countries and regions along the Belt and Road Initiative, down 10.4 percent, accounting for 78.3 percent of the total. Of this figure, 7,196 went to Vietnam, accounting for 37.2 percent of the total, making the country the biggest overseas destination.
