VOV.VN - Up to 28 Vietnamese firms, including nine pangasuis exporters, are currently attending the ongoing Seafood Expo Global 2022 in Spain.
As the world's leading seafood trade event, the April 26-28 expo has attracted the participation of distributors, retailers, reporters, and buyers from hundreds of countries around the globe.
The expo is expected to create a golden opportunity for Vietnamese pangasuis firms to break into both the Spanish and EU markets, particularly as demand for seafood products grows exponentially.
Tra export value to Spain reached US$4.9 million in the first quarter of the year, recording annual growth of 67.5%, according to figures given to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP).
Spain is the fourth largest Vietnamese pangasius export market in the EU. In the first quarter of the year, there were roughly 20 Vietnamese enterprises exporting this type of fish to the market.
Currently, the EU is lacking supplies of Alaska pollock and cod from the Russian market. Therefore, Vietnamese pangasius enterprises are forecast to receive more orders at the expo.
