VOV.VN - Vietnamese tra fish (pangasius) and shrimp exports have recorded promising signs in the Chinese market, especially since China moved to ease its anti-pandemic rules, according to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP).
After recording triple-digit growth of between 125% and 140% between March and May, Vietnamese shrimp exports to this market plummeted in June, securing an increase of 32% with a total value of nearly US$58 million. But its six-month export value represented a sharp rise of 84% year on year to US$333 million.
Meanwhile, pangasius shipments exported to China, including Hong Kong, in the first half brought back US$427.6 millio, up 107% year on year, despite enduring difficulties caused by the mainland’s zero-COVID policy.
Experts say that the removal of Chinese regulations relating to suspending the import of frozen food contaminated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus is anticipated to accelerate Vietnamese frozen shrimp and pangasius exports to this market ahead in the second half of the year.
Accordingly, Chinese Customs will join VASEP in conducting online inspections of local enterprises' production process as a means of strictly monitoring the overall product quality and food safety standards before exporting to this market.
