MEKSEA.COM – Vietnam’s aquatic products have gained the favour of Australian consumers. Therefore, recently, the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs cooperated with the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) to organize a workshop on “Promoting aquaculture export to Australia”.
Despite being significantly affected by the covid-19 pandemic, Vietnam’s seafood exports to Australia have continued to increase over time, especially in the second quarter of 2021, up 35% over the same period in 2020.
Through the workshop, Vietnam’s Deputy Foreign Minister emphasized that the strategic partnership between Vietnam and Australia is developing very well, and Australia is one of the 10 largest trade partners of Vietnam.
Taking advantage of the ASEAN-Australia and New Zealand Free Trade Agreements (AANZFTA), CPTPP, and RCEP to which the two countries are members, Vietnamese businesses need to strengthen cooperation related to testing procedures in the Agreement. AANZFTA can create favorable conditions for Vietnam’s seafood exports in the coming time, at the same time, the uniform application of SPS standards in the AANZFTA Agreement will reduce the possibility of trade disruption and help the aquaculture industry Vietnamese aquaculture takes advantage of easier market access opportunities.
