VASEP Highlight - April 2023: Vietnam tuna exports decreased by 30% in the first quarter of 2023

Tuna export turnover in March 2023 reached more than 72 million USD, down 31% over the same period in 2022. In the first 3 months of 2023, tuna exports reached more than 180 million USD, down 30% compared to the first quarter of 2022. Although Vietnam's tuna exporters have made efforts to expand exports to small markets, the increase in volume is not enough to offset losses.
