The Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu grossed more than 355 million USD from selling over 40,000 tonnes of aquatic products abroad in January-November.

The result was attributed to seafood businesses’ efforts in securing traditional markets and stabilising production, according to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Businesses have further invested in modernising shrimp production lines and processing technology as this staple accounts for 98 percent of the local export value.

To win trust from customers, enterprises have concentrated on improving the quality of the products, ensuring food safety and hygiene, and expanding markets to the Republic of Korea , Japan and some Middle East countries.

Bac Lieu is currently home to 33 aquatic processing factories, with a total capacity of 100,000 tonnes per year.

Local exporters strive to earn 400 million USD by the year’s end, with over 357 million USD from seafood products.-VNA
