Deputy Ambassador Pham Hung Tam said Vietnam has exported its aquatic products to more than 170 countries around the world, with the US remaining the largest importer for years. Vietnam’s key fisheries exports to the US include shrimp and tra fish. In the first seven months of this year, the US was among top four markets of Vietnamese aquatic products.
During the event, US partners and businesses expressed their wish to cooperate with Vietnamese fisheries companies. NFI President John Connelly said the NFI has cooperated closely with the embassy, trade office and businesses of Vietnam to study, and give policy proposals on market development. Founder of the Endeavour Seafood, Todd Clark, said his company has cooperated with Vietnamese partners for 10 years and spoke highly about Vietnamese fisheries potential.
