High-quality fishery products and the latest seafood processing technologies are being exhibited at the 11th Seoul Seafood Show in the Republic of Korea (RoK) by 139 businesses from all over the world, including Vietnam.

This year’s event is organised by the Korea Fisheries Association at the COEX Convention and Exhibition Centre in Seoul between April 15 and 17.

Items on display include seafood, seasoning and food additives; food processing machinery and related equipment; packaging; physical distribution equipment; refrigerators, freezers and thawing machines; and feed for aquaculture.

Workshops exchanging the latest technologies in seafood sanitation control and processing will also be held on the sidelines of the 3-day show.

The event offers an opportunity for Vietnamese enterprises to promote their products and look for foreign buyers, particularly from the RoK, and advanced technologies, in order to make inroad into both local and international markets.

According to the Vietnam Commercial Office in the RoK, Vietnam exported 652 million USD worth of seafood to the partner last year, up 27.8 percent from 2013.

The RoK is currently Vietnam 3 rd largest seafood buyer, followed the United States and Japan.-VNA
