[23 November 2016] Rising concerns on food safety in Vietnam and a preference for imported meat, has seen European countries promoting their meat products here, more so with EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) that is due to take effect by 2018.
A delegation of 42 EU establishments led by Phil Hogan, EU Agriculture Commissioner, held meetings with Vietnamese enterprises in an effort to strengthen ties and work towards the implementation of the EVFTA.
The meeting showed that Vietnamese consumers favour not only high quality pork, but also poultry by-products. About 100 EU exporters currently export meat products to Vietnam.
Meat imports from EU to Vietnam grew to 711 tonnes in 2015 from 10 tonnes in 2012.
