Vietnam’s tra fish exports exceed US$2 billion for first time

Vietnam’s tra fish (pangasius) export value has exceeded US$2 billion for the first time, with the figure hitting US$2.05 billion in the first 11 months of this year, a year-on-year increase of 27.4%, according to the General Department of Customs.

Duong Nghia Quoc, chairman of the Vietnam Pangasius Association, said the total export value of tra fish this year is expected to reach a record high at about US$2.2 billion.

In October and November, the consumption of tra fish in the US increased about 40% due to a reduction in anti-dumping duties on Vietnamese tra fish, while tra fish demand recovered in the EU and China maintained good consumption.

To meet demand, Mekong Delta provinces should maintain tra fish output of 1.3-1.5 million tonnes per year, Quoc said. They should focus on improving the quality of fish farming and processing more value added products.

Truong Dinh Hoe, general secretary of the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP), said the two main reasons for the growth in tra fish export value in the first 11 months this year included price and added-value products.

This year, tra fish output has not met high demand on the local market, driving the price of raw material for tra fish production and the export price up. This contributed significantly to the value of catfish exports from the beginning of the year, Hoe said.

Hoe said 2019 is expected to be a good year for producers, processors and exporters of tra fish as the export market has stable demand and standards.

Vietnam’s rice brand logo unveiled

Vietnam’s rice brand logo has been launched at the on-going third Vietnam Rice Festival organised in the Mekong Delta province of Long An.

The logo was selected from around 500 entries from across the country and abroad sent to a logo contest on the Vietnamese rice trademark held by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) last year. It features an ear of rice with rice leaves shaped like the image of chim lạc (a legendary bird). The phrase Vietnam Rice is written on the green oval-shaped logo.



The logo of Vietnam's rice


Vietnam has submitted an international trademark registration application for the logo to the Madrid system of World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO).

After receiving WIPO feedback, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development will issue regulations for using the logo when exporting rice.

According to Nguyen Quoc Toan, the MARD’s Agro-Product Processing and Market Development, only rice products which meet quality standards can use the…

Canada wants to sell more cherries in Vietnam

The Canadian Embassy in Vietnam organized a cherry tasting event in Ho Chi Minh City on Saturday to celebrate the start of a new season and promote the fruits to local consumers.

“In Vietnam, Canadian cherries enjoy an increasing popularity among consumers,” said Barbara Nadeau, commercial counsellor of Canada in Vietnam.

In 2015, Canadian exports of fresh cherries to Vietnam increased by nearly 50 percent to over 1.7 million Canadian dollars (US$1.3 million).

Overall, exports of Canadian fresh fruits, including cherries and Ambrosia apples, have increased by 80 percent, reaching nearly 4 million Canadian dollars in 2015.

According to Canadian Embassy in Hanoi, agricultural and agri-food is an important and growing part of the Canada-Vietnam bilateral trade, representing more than half of Canada’s total exports to Vietnam.

Canadian exports of agri-food and seafood to Vietnam in 2015 totaled 353.6 million Canadian dollars, up by more than 48 percent over 2014.
