China’s reduced import tax boosts Vietnam’s tra fish export

China’s reduction of import tax on tra fish will help domestic firms boost exports to the country – the largest market for Vietnamese tra fish. 
 
On May 31, the Chinese Ministry of Finance announced an import tax reduction for 221 aquatic products from member states of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). Tariffs on tra fish fillets and fresh and frozen tra fish were cut from 10 percent to 7 percent, and from 12 percent to 7 percent, respectively from July 1. 
 
The move will help lift tra fish exports through official channels instead of cross-border trade, which will exempt goods from a 17 percent value added tax and import tax. 
 
Additionally, the US-China trade war also gives Vietnamese firms a chance to boost tra fish exports to the two markets. 
 
Secretary General of the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) Truong Dinh Hoe said tra fish could be used for hundreds of recipes so the domestic tra fish sector could increase export of added-value products into China. 
 
VASEP statistics showed that tra fish shipments to China have surged by 21-35 percent annually in the past five years. From January to mid-May, tra fish exports to the neighbouring country reached 174.2 million USD, making it the biggest currency earner among exports to China. 
 
Last year, China became the fourth largest importer of Vietnamese aquatic products with a value of 1.33 billion USD, accounting for 15 percent of the total. In the first half of this year, seafood shipments to China and Hong Kong were estimated to exceed 586.4 million USD, surpassing the EU to become the third largest importer behind the US and Japan. 
 
China is considered an important market of Vietnam but also poses risks if firms fail to pay attention to product quality and trademarks.-VNA
