The southern province of Kien Giang has set a target of earning over 60 million USD from exporting aquatic products in the remaining months of this year, towards fulfilling its yearly plan of 185 million USD.

To reach the goal, the province will continue increasing trade promotion, introducing its products in regional and international markets as well as enhancing cooperation with other localities and foreign partners.

It plans to participate in the 2013 Mekong Delta Economic Cooperation Forum (MDEC), slated for November 21-24 in Vinh Long province, and organise several trade fairs in the locality to introduce its products to domestic and foreign enterprises.

Beside, the province will also create favourabe conditions for businesses to access capital sources, while issuing policies on tax exemption, reduction and extension to promote production and export of goods.

Since the beginning of this year, Kien Giang’s seafood exports hit over 127 million USD, up 10 percent over the same period last year, and equivalent to 68.6 percent of the yearly target.

Local exporters have set up trade ties with their clients in more than 40 countries and territories all over the world. China, the US, Japan and Russia are their key markets.-VNA
