VTV.vn - Vietnam's shrimp exports saw impressive growth despite the impact of COVID-19, with double-digit growth in export turnover since September.

The latest data from the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) revealed that Vietnam exported an estimated 3.78 billion USD worth of shrimp in 2020, a 12.4% increase from last year.

The US is the largest importer of Vietnamese shrimp, having imported an increase of 34% this year. Meanwhile, shrimp exports to the EU are growing stably thanks to the EVFTA.

According to exporters, white-leg shrimp has been popular in retail markets and account for 72% of Vietnam's shrimp export turnover this year; a year when processed shrimps were more sought after than frozen shrimp.
