Experts have hailed significant export potential for Vietnamese seafood created by the Vietnam-EU Free Trade Agreement.
During a workshop in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on Friday, Mr. Dao Trong Hieu from the Agricultural Product Processing and Market Development Department at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said that in the next five years, Vietnam’s seafood exports to the EU will grow better if the “yellow card” warning for illegal seafood exploitation by the European Commission is removed, and the country takes advantage of tax incentives brought by the EVFTA.
The Vietnam’s seafood export turnover to the EU in the next five years is forecast to reach 1.2 -1.5 billion USD per year.
- Vietnam’s seafood exports to EU predicted to down 20 percent
- Seafood exports to surge if EU removes yellow card
- Vietnamese seafood exports recovering
- Seafood export orders see sharp increase after EVFTA took effect
- Problems arising from EVFTA removed
- Vietnamese firms allowed to resume seafood export to Saudi Arabia
- Vietnam seafood perfectly well placed to benefit from EVFTA
- Positive export figures after two months of EVFTA being in effect
