Vietnam’s Seafood Exports Hit US$4.63 Billion in First Seven Months

Posted: Tuesday, August 07, 2018

The value of Vietnam’s seafood exports in the first seven months of 2018 was estimated at US$4.63 billion, up 6.3 per cent over the same period last year, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD).

The US, Japan, China and the Republic of Korea were the largest importers of Vietnamese seafood in the first half of 2018, accounting for 53.5 per cent of the total value.

Seafood exports also saw strong growth in the Netherlands, Germany and Hong Kong (China) at 56 per cent, 27.2 per cent and 23.9 per cent respectively.

During the January-July period, Vietnam imported US$984 million worth of seafood, up 27.8 per cent compared with the same period of 2017.

According to the MARD Department of Produce Processing and Market Development, the imposition of a 10 per cent tariff on all Chinese seafood exports by the US and China’s plan to levy a 25 per cent tariff on US seafood will provide an opportunity for Vietnam to boost its exports to these two markets.
