The Chilean Export Promotion Bureau (ProChile) said the country considered Viet Nam as a promising market for Chilean seafood, especially salmon.
According to ProChile, this nation is more and more being potential because of the tendency of Western food consumption habits of local people and a large number of foreigners living here.
Moreover, Vietnam has the high demand of importing raw salmon for processing and re-exporting to Japan and EU markets. Currently, 80 percent of salmon imports are processed for re-export while only 20 percent are sold in the domestic market. Chilean salmon represents 70 percent of imported seafood in Vietnam.
