Exports to other markets such as China, Mexico, Thailand and the Republic of Korea still enjoyed growth. According to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers , the US Department of Commerce has announced its preliminary results for the 9th period of review according to which the average tariff has dropped.  Furthermore, the rise of 20% of the US dollar against the Euro and Yen last year stimulated consumption and imports to the US. It also created a reason for Vietnam shrimp exporters to expand their market shares in the country.
