Sydney (VNA) – The Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) will join hands with relevant agencies to organise a dialogue between 100 Vietnamese seafood businesses in the Mekong Delta region and the Australia’s Seafood Importers Association (ASIS) to promote seafood shipments to Australia, VFF President Tran Thanh Man has said.

Man asked the ASIS to pay due attention to the imports of Vietnamese shrimp and tra fish while meeting with Norman Grant, President of the association, in Sydney on December 8.

He said he believes that with significant improvements in quality, Vietnamese seafood will satisfy strict requirements of its importers, including Australia.

“If shrimp and tra fish, two strategic goods of Vietnam, are allowed to enter the Australian market in 2018, it will be a practical move to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the diplomatic ties between the two countries,” Man noted.

Norman Grant, for his part, said that as shrimp imports to Australia are evaluated based on biological safety principle, the VFF should work to supervise shrimp farming businesses to ensure food safety before exports.

He expressed his hope that fish breeding facilities in Vietnam will be improved, meeting fastidious requirements of Australia.

The same day, Man surveyed Suez waste treatment technology on the outskirts of Sydney.
