Addressing a workshop in Hanoi on Wednesday, Nguyen Viet Manh, Head of the Vietnam Directorate General of Fisheries’ Scientific, Technological and International Cooperation Department, said social responsibility will not only benefit the sector but will also ensure sustainable development and help protect the environment.

Manh said that in the context of globalization and international integration, businesses that do not exercise social responsibility cannot approach foreign markets.

The workshop was organised by the International Collaborating Centre for Aquaculture and Fisheries Sustainability (ICAFIS), the Vietnam Fisheries Association, and Oxfam Vietnam.
