Japan's Kato Hitoshi General Office and Japanese seafood experts have pledged their continuous assistance to help fishermen in Binh Dinh province export tuna fish to Japan.
Chairman of the Binh Dinh provincial People's Committee Le Huu Loc said the Japan-Vietnam Friendship Association and other relevant agencies are seeking every measure in support of local fishermen. To secure a firm foothold on the Japanese market, it is essential to promote the use of advanced technology and improve the efficiency of tuna fishing, he suggested.

According to Cao Thi Kim Lan, Director of Bidifisco, which purchases tuna fish to ship to Japan, the price of Vietnamese tuna is traded at around VND240.000/kg (around US$12/kg) on the Japanese market.
With the current export price, Bidifisco can earn a little amount of profit, she said, but still hopeful for bright prospects for tuna export to Japan, which she described as a promising market.
“We are focusing on educating local fishermen on standard fishing procedures and tuna identification techniques and providing them with more assistance and equipment for higher efficiency”, Lan added.
During a recent working session with the Binh Dinh provincial People's Committee, representatives of the Japan-Vietnam Friendship Association in Osaka, Kato Hitoshi General Office and Japanese seafood experts said they are willing to help local tuna exporters to access the Japanese market and develop Vietnamese tuna trademark in Japan.
