HA NOI  (VNS) — The agriculture and rural development ministry (MARD) has agreed with the industry and trade ministry's (MoIT)'s 2015 quota plan for the import of sugar, salt and eggs.

This will be part of the efforts to fulfill WTO commitments.

Accordingly, Vietnamese companies will be allowed to import 81,000 tonnes of sugar, 102,000 tonnes of salt and 555,600 poultry eggs this year.

Of a total 102,000 tonnes of salt, the same volume as last year, 2,000 tonnes and 40,000 tonnes will be imported by firms operating in the medical and chemical sectors respectively. Chemical firms are encouraged to use domestically produced salt for their production activities.

MARD asked MoIT to roll out measures to create transparency and justice among importers. — VNS
