Tuna exports to China skyrocket in first half of September

VOV.VN - The export value of Vietnamese tuna to China during the first half of September soared by 332% compared to the same period from last year, according to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP).

The country’s tuna exports to China during the initial eight months of the year surged by 63% to hit US$3.6 million compared to last year’s corresponding period.

VASEP says the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has since the middle of the year slowed down Vietnamese tuna exports to various foreign markets, including China.

In addition, Zhanjiang, one of the major transshipment hubs in China, has suspended the import of frozen food from major seafood producers, including Vietnam, since May, making a considerable impact on Vietnam’s tuna exports to the neighbouring market.

However, the General Department of Vietnam Customs reports that China is increasing its imports of frozen tuna fillets and canned tuna products from Vietnam, with the two groups accounting for 66% and 19% of the country’s total export value of the products, respectively.

Nguyen Ha, an expert from the VASEP, reveals that approximately 23 local tuna processing businesses are shipping their products to the Chinese market. If the pandemic is fully brought under control in the Mekong Delta region, Ha says tuna exports to China are anticipated to maintain a high growth momentum in the coming months.
