BAC LIEU (VNS) — The Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Bac Lieu this month exported 2,700 tonnes of frozen shrimp worth US$32 million, local authorities have said.

The latest figures have raised total exports for the first four months to 8,300 tonnes, earning the province more than $100 million.

The positive export value was attributed to moves by businesses to seek contracts in new foreign markets such as Australia, Hong Kong, South Korea, and several Arab countries. The local firms have also tightened quality controls and food sanitation by carefully selecting their suppliers. — VNS
