Vietnam to boost distribution network in the EU and US

The Vietnamese government wants to develop a stronger distribution network for its seafood exports in its major markets.

Vietnam's general fisheries department is looking to develop a distribution network to boost Vietnamese seafood exports, reported Tuoitre News.

According to the deputy head of the General Fisheries Department, Nguyen Huy Dien, this is part of efforts by the government to provide urgent support for aquaculture farmers and seafood exporters.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development will look to sign contracts with businesses that supply to distribution centers and supermarkets.

It will also set up seafood promotion centers in these markets to provide information on Vietnamese aquatic products.

The seafood sector estimates that it will earn $3.4 billion from exports in the first seven months of this year, a year on year increase of 6.5 percent.

However, this is a much lower growth rate than that in the same period of 2010, which recorded 20 percent, according to the ministry.
