BAC LIEU (VNS) — The Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Bac Lieu exported 14,800 tonnes of aquatic products in the first four months this year and earned US$115 million, representing a year-on-year increase of 42 per cent. In April alone, the locality shipped abroad 4,690 tonnes of frozen shrimp, with a revenue of $38 million.
The result was attributed to the efforts of the enterprises in improving their processing and manufacturing process to improve the quality of products and reduce the production cost.
Bac Lieu's aquatic products maintain a firm foothold in international markets, fulfilling importers' regulations on food security and technical requirements.
In April, the locality enjoyed an aquatic farming and catching output of nearly 23,000 tonnes. The figure pushed the total output of Bac Lieu in this year's January-April period to 73,000 tonnes, a 3 per cent rise over the same period in 2013, helping the province complete nearly 27 per cent of its yearly target.— VNS
