Vietnam’s tuna export to China shoots upSaturday, April 20,2019
AsemconnectVietnam - Vietnam’s export of tuna to China rocketed by 771 percent in the first two months of this year, making the market the fifth largest importer of Vietnamese tuna after the US, the EU, Israel and the ASEAN, said the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP).
Particularly, frozen tuna fillets from Vietnam and the ASEAN member countries are exempted from tax in the Chinese market. The advantage allowed Vietnam to become the leading provider of frozen tuna fillets to the market with over 65 percent of the market share in 2018.
The VASEP predicted that Vietnam’s export of the product to China will continue to rise in 2019. In the first two months of this year, Vietnam’s exports to China accounted for 94 percent of the country’s total tuna export value.
The association revealed that this year, Vietnam will provide new fresh and frozen tuna products to China.
According to Nguyen Thi Thu Sac, Vice Chairwoman of VASEP, tuna exports are forecast to top 1 billion USD this year, 350 million USD higher than last year.
