VGP - Vietfish, Viet Nam’s biggest fisheries exhibition will be held in Ho Chi Minh City from August 29-31.

In its 21st edition this year, the annual event, with the theme “Asia’s Home of Seafood”, is expected to feature more than 340 booths of businesses from 15 countries and territories.

Vietfish 2019 is designed to connect producers in the fisheries sector with local and foreign firms, and provide a platform for businesses to learn and share their experience in the field. It is hoped to attract 17,000 visitors this year.

Vietnamese companies are once more showing off their potential as leading fisheries exporters.

A representative of VASEP said Viet Nam’s fisheries sector has recorded strong growth thanks to stable supply and food safety. 

A report of the Directorate of Fisheries showed that turnover from aquatic product exports hit US$9 billion in 2018, accounting for 22.5% of the country’s agricultural product export revenue. 

The country’s aquatic products have reached out to more than 170 markets worldwide.

Vietfish offers visitors the chance to cook and taste dishes made from shrimp, tuna, squid and octopus.

It will feature several conferences that discuss critical issues.

In addition, the expo will give participants business opportunities and chances to boost trade, get new partners and sign contracts as well as promoting Vietnamese aqua-products in international markets.
