Container cargo processed at the seaports reached 7.29 millionTEU in the January-March period, rising from the previous year's 7.19 millionTEU, according to the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries.
Processed export-import cargo jumped 4.5 per cent year on year to reach 4.24 million TEU in the first quarter, which the ministry attributed the growth to stronger trade with China and Canada.
