September 22, 2014, 03:26 PM
The Mekong Delta city of Can Tho will promote exports of agricultural products and seafood to Russian market in a bid to improve living standards for its farmers.

At present, Can Tho's agricultural and aquatic products amount to only 1.6 percent of Viet Nam's total exports to Russia.

At Wednesday's meeting on commodity exports, vice-chairman of the municipal People's Committee, Truong Quang Hoai Nam, asked the municipal Department of Industry and Trade to conduct market surveys with the city's Trade and Investment Promotion Centre.

The surveys will seek information on taxes and quality requirements for goods eyeing the Russian market.

He suggested that businesses should diversify export products and promote their goods on Russian websites.

Director of the Department of Industry and Trade, Nguyen Minh Toai, said Can Tho's main exports to Russia included rice, tra fish fillet, molluscs; and frozen, dried and salted fish.
