The European Union (EU) has permitted 53 more Vietnamese businesses to export aquatic products to the EU market, said the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP).

VASEP said these enterprises have already overcome a wide range of strict quality check programmes conducted by the EU inspection team.

Previously, 330 domestic companies were allowed to sell the products to the EU market, one of the world’s largest seafood consumers, which imported more than 1 billion USD worth of aquatic products last year ./.
