Vietnam Emerged as Major Market for Indian Shrimp Exports in 2016 (24/04/2017 - Quách Trúc)

At the same time that India has become as major shrimp supplier to the US market, it has also stepped up exports to Vietnam with shipments in some months even surpassing those to the US. Last year Indian shrimp exports to Vietnamese and US markets increased 28 and 29 percent respectively and were the top two markets for Indian shippers. During India’s heavy harvest period last spring India’s shrimp exports to Vietnam were higher than exports to the US. Additionally, by December of last year, Indian shrimp exports to Vietnam and the US were about the same both in terms of volume and as a percentage of India’s overall exported market share. Vietnamese processors continue to report severe raw material shortages from domestic producers and higher dependence on imported materials. This is an indication that Vietnam will continue to buy foreign raw shrimp supplies so it can meet a goal to export $7.5 billion worth of seafood in 2017.

Impediments to the Vietnamese seafood industry by the U.S. government and domestic interests (31/03/2017 - Administrator)

For over ten years there has been a plague of trade barriers foisted upon Vietnamese processors of seafood, namely frozen shrimp and frozen fish fillets (tra/basa).  These have come in the form of prohibitions to using certain common commercial names in the U.S. market, antidumping actions and new certification and “equivalency” regulations by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  The net impact has been a significant decline in exports to the US and a financial drain on Vietnamese producers, exporters and their US customers in defending against these trade barriers, adjusting to new regulations and requirements and setting up protective measures to avoid further deterioration in U.S. market share.
