(vasep.com.vn) At early June 2014, Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) in coordination with Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) held a seminar discussing measures to solve challenges faced by exporters of agro and aquatic products.

Weak demand from importing markets and strong competitiveness from other supplying countries are large barriers to agro and aquatic exports. Besides, domestic exporters are increasingly confronting with technical and trade barriers set by importing markets while costs for power, water, input materials, transportation are hiking.

At the seminar, MOIT and MARD, representatives from enterprises and associations shared their opinions and discussed solutions to overcome current hurdles; sought to access to loans for investing in producing, processing and exporting; intensified trade promotion and products promotion as well as strengthen exchange information among competent agencies.

The seminar focused on measures for fostering trade promotion activities, expanding markets, removing technical and trade barriers, planning areas of raw material production, developing agricultural production, training labor force, controlling the products' quality.

To strengthen the cooperation, MOIT and MARD signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on mutual cooperation between two ministries in order to fulfill targets, overcome current difficulties and boost exports of agro and aquatic products in 2014 and in the future.​
