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).

The aim is to promote seafood shipments to Australia, VFF President Tran Thanh Man said.

Man asked the ASIS to pay due attention to the import of Vietnamese shrimp and tra fish while meeting with Norman Grant, president of the association, in Sydney on Friday.

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

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

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

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