Tra fish exports to the US fall

(VOV) - Tra fish exports to the US for the three months leading up to April dropped by 14.4% on-year to US$62.59 million on the back of high anti-dumping tariffs, according to the Vietnam Association Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP).

Earlier this year the US Department of Commerce, following an anti-dumping duty administrative review (POR 10), nearly doubled the anti-dumping tax rate levied on Vietnamese tra fish fillets.

The revised rate of US$0.97 per kilo applies to 24 Vietnamese tra fish exporters and is much higher than the US$0.58 rate previously imposed.
