Seafood Expo Global 2019 – Affirming the position and commitment of the Mekong Seafood Connection Co., Ltd. In Vietnam’s fisheries industry

by MFG Team - 20 09 2019

Seafood Expo Global is the world’s largest seafood trade event. It is the global place where the seafood industry meets. More than 26,600 buyers, suppliers, media, and other seafood professionals from 144 countries visit the exhibition.

Back to 2018, Mekong Seafood Connection (MEKSEA) was very honored to have over 120 visitors from more than 40 markets worldwide with 9 exporting contracts worth 1.25 million US dollars signed during the 3 days at the expo. This is really a very encouraging result for Meksea’s family, as well as being an evident proof of the company’s popularity on the global market.

Up to now, Vietnam has got 16 trade agreements (FTAs) have been signed enforced and under negotiation. Of these, 10 FTAs have been implemented, including 6 agreements implemented as members of ASEAN and 4 bilateral agreements with Japan, South Korea, Chile, Euro Economic Union (EEC), and with economic zones such as AFTA, EVFTA, CPTPP, AANZFTA, ACFTA, AKFTA, EFTA FTA, RCEP. Especially with EVFTA which soon coming into effect, EU commits to abolish tariffs for goods with 85.6% of tariff lines, equivalent to 70.3% of Vietnam’s export turnover to the EU. It will be a big advantage to promote business partnership between EU and Vietnam.

With the aim of getting back the “green card”, Vietnam has made enormous efforts to implement recommendations of the EU by taking drastic actions to prevent and combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Vietnam government has promoted training for fishermen, ship owners and enterprises as well as the state agency of aquatic resource exploitation, increase their awareness about the harm of yellow cards on the reputation of Vietnamese seafood as well had increased their participation in international forums to express the government’s view that it will never tolerate illegal fishing activities.
