    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    The Asian region is a major supplier of fish products to the EU market. Over the period 2005-2010 in par-ticular, the aquaculture sector in some Asian countries became an important producer as well as exporter of whitefish and shrimps. Within the Asian region, CBI is currently studying the possibilities of developing integrated programmes for the seafood sector for specific countries. This follows up on CBI’s current sea-food activities in Indonesia with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) and the Surabaya Sea-food Centre. For the development of these programmes, a good understanding of the supply and demand side of the industry is essential. For CBI to support further export growth of the seafood sectors of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, additional research on the value chains of the most relevant seafood prod-ucts in Vietnam is required.
