HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam's tra fish exports to the EU reached an estimated US$237 million over the past eight months, down 13 per cent year-on-year, according to the Viet Nam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers.
The unsatisfactory performance was attributable to the falling price of tra fish on the global market, the association said, adding that tra fish has sold somewhere between $2.4-2.6 per kilo in the second quarter, down 10-20 per cent compared to prices in previous years.
Total seafood exports to the EU in the past eight months hit around $720 million, down 4.6 per cent, mainly due to a significant slump in tra fish exports which used to account for 35-40 per cent of the total seafood export earnings from the EU. — VNS
