The European Commission (EC) has decided to allow an additional 30 Vietnamese seafood processing businesses to export their products to the European Union (EU).

This was announced by Vietnam’s National Agriculture and Fisheries Quality Assurance Directorate (NAFIQAD) on September 8.

According to NAFIQAD, an additional four businesses will be allowed to sell seafood in Japan.

The Republic of Korea and China have also agreed to grant licences to four more Vietnamese businesses in the sector, NAFIQAD added.

The new move increases the total number of businesses exporting seafood to the EU to 330.

Japan has opened its door to almost 450 Vietnamese seafood producers, while China allows products of more than 400 enterprises, Brazil, 60, and Russia, 30./.
