Vietnamese exports to USA critically dependent on surrogate country and surrogate value experts
After signing of a Bilateral Trade Agreement (“BTA”) in 2000, the trade between Vietnam and USA flourished. The high quality Vietnamese goods exported to US market have benefitted the Vietnamese producers as well as US consumers.

International certified products plays an important role in some markets due to its reliability. However, international certificates just facilitates the bussiness at openning time meanwhile quality is the critical factor.
In the whole of the Tra fish product chain, which was built for crisis overcoming, incubation is the first stage and plays the most important role. As the quality of Tra fish material will decide the quality of the whole chain, no faults in this stage can be corrected later. Decree 36 stipulates the aquaculture planning as the first priority.
Many hold that the first step for successfully restructuring Vietnam’s Tra fish industry is to improve the Tra fry quality and to apply advanced farming technology.
