VIETNAM-EU TIES/TRADE
Vietnam to boost seafood exports to EU through Italy

Vietnam and Italy will cooperate to boost the export of seafood and agricultural products to the European Union (EU), reported Vietnam News Agency.

Recently, Nguyen Tu Cuong, Head of the National Fisheries Quality Assurance and Veterinary Directorate (Nafiqaved), and Romano Marabelli, General Director of the Italian Ministry of Health's Department of Food, Nutrition and Public Health, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on food quality control.

Marabelli said Vietnam should increase food exports to Italy, especially seafood such as shrimp, tra and basa catfish, but he warned that Vietnam's food exports must meet hygiene safety standards in order to protect consumers health.


There is a need to raise producers awareness of food safety and increase the control of functional agencies. To date, 269 Vietnamese enterprises have been permitted to export their products to the EU and Italy.
