Vietnam's seafood exports from Mekong Delta likely to reach 170,000 tonnes


Can Tho City, located in Vietnam's Mekong Delta, is aiming to export 170,000 tonnes of seafood by the end of 2013, an increase of 30,000 tonnes on-year.
The growth is expected to bring a revenue of US$1.46 billion for the whole year, an increase of US$210 million over 2012.


As part of efforts to boost growth, the city plans to diversify its high-quality products, improve food hygiene, and focus on processing prawns and fishes which are of major demand in the global market.


In order to speed up technology transfer and application in manufacturing, the city also facilitates links among businesses in the field, aiming to enhance the products' competitiveness and tailoring to the taste of specific markets.


In addition to working with relevant agencies to deal with the challenges of tariff and non-tariff barriers in the global trade market, local authorities have supported enterprises to promote trade and popularise Tra fish products to foreign importers and customers.
