The southern province of Kien Giang will carry out a project in the period 2014-2016 to export farmed fish to China.

Le Gia Fishery Co., Ltd, a partner of China’s Hong Vu Trading Company limited, is assigned to implement the project.

The Chinese partner will use two ships to purchase commercial fish in four island communes of Hon Nghe, Son Hai, Nam Du and An Son.

Le Gia Company will be responsible for implementing trade transactions and paying money for fishermen.

In recent years, the open sea fish farming industry in Kien Giang has developed strongly, especially in the two districts of Kien Hai and Phu Quoc and several other island communes, which have advantageous natural conditions. The output of raised-fish in 2013 is estimated to reach 1,500 tonnes.

From now until 2015, the province will build concentrated areas of fish cultivation for export, thus creating stable employment and improving income for local people.

In addition, the locality will improve open sea fish farming and breeding to build a trademark. Besides the Chinese market, it will also foster export to other markets such as North America, Europe, Russia, Australia and East Asia.-VNA
