Industry insiders point out that Vietnamese tuna will continue to face a number of challenges in the time ahead due to the European Commission’s yellow card warning against Vietnamese seafood.

Furthermore, local businesses are short of both domestic raw materials and imported materials.

However, as a number of major international seafood fairs are scheduled to take place in the US and Spain in March and April, there will be a positive outlook ahead for Vietnamese tuna businesses, say experts.
