VIET NAM - The European Commission has recognised an additional 53 Vietnamese businesses which have good enough conditions to export seafood to the market, according to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Processors (VASEP).

Businesses had to join strict quality inspection programmes conducted by the EU delegation to get the certificates for export to the EU.

Earlier, 330 businesses were allowed to export their products to the market.

In 2010, the EU imported more than US$ 1 billion seafood from Vietnam. Currently, the EU is still a big market for Vietnamese seafood products.
