Vietnam is one of the best investment destinations in Asia and is the main producer of livestock and aquaculture. Vietnam not only meets domestic consumption, but also exports to many countries. The Ministry of Agriculture and Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam reported that the livestock and related sectors’ exports were worth US$855.4 million and are expected to reach $1.2 billion in the next year. According to the Directorate of Fisheries, total seafood production in September 2019 reached 733.5 thousand MT, of which capture output hit 251 thousand MT, and the aquaculture volume touched 328.5 thousand MT.
