Vietnamese enterprises are showcasing their products at the Brussels Seafood Expo 2019 in Belgium, aiming to give Vietnamese seafood a firmer foothold in the European market.

On display at the expo are Vietnamese aquatic products, including shrimp, tra fish, tuna and octopus. The pavilion of Vietnam attracted a large number of visitors.

On the sidelines of the event, a forum on Vietnamese seafood and cooperation prospects took place. Speaking at the forum, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Phung Duc Tien said the Vietnamese fisheries sector focuses on developing its products towards applying modern technology, increasing product quality and values, diversifying products, and ensuring food security, safety and hygiene.

The signing and ratification of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement in the time ahead is also expected to raise the Southeast Asian nation’s export turnover thanks to tariff cuts.-VNA
